Love everything about it!
I didn't realize penetrol could be used that way. It basically hardens like a clear coat?
Yes, but it wasn't my idea. I read somewhere online a few guys have been using it with success when I searched "patina preservation"....one guy was really into preserving old snowmobiles and was using Penetrol with success.
It's UV resistant and it "creeps" really well into every seam, nook, and cranny when you brush it on. It does a WONDERFUL job of sealing off the metal and rust. It's action is similar to Krown. However, this stuff hardens.
It's really glossy once dried....as you can see in the pics above. I love this stuff now!!!
If you've ever tried to "clear coat" a non-perfect surface (like this tractor) you'd have a great outcome, but in short time, it will begin to crack and peel and leave you with a nasty mess. Clear coat is great, but it perfect a near-perfect fresh paint job to adhere to. Penetrol does the job better.
