    Tootsietoy cars

    These are the first ones I've restored but the process was simple. I used a small soda blaster to strip the old paint, tucked paper into the wheel wells to keep from painting the wheels, and spray paint. Now I need to find a few more colors for my other dug cars.

    I gave a couple of those away but got a few more repainted, and a display box for them.
    I'll update again when I get it full.

    It's really easy, I use a $20 hand held gravity feed sand blaster from Harbor Freight, but I just use common baking soda as my blasting medium. It does a good job of removing the paint but doesn't rough up the surface of the metal. Then I simply tape off the wheels and paint.

    Feel free to post pics of your own restored toys.

    I have a tootsie toy cruisliner ship on my desk. Looks about 1950s or 60s. I like the patina.
