found these under some blue Gluek's IRTPs. Dumped from a Farm dump up here in northern Minnesota. Tried a little rub out after acid. I think I messed with them a little to much.tom

Dumper paint overs are beasts to begin with. I don't know what you used to get the top layer of paint off, but when I get to the primer I start using polishing compound. Don't be too hard on yourself, I think they don't look bad at all, all things considered.

I agree with the comment on dumpers crowntainers. I got the Tru Blu on the right underneath a yellow Kingsbury crowntainer. The Brucks on the left was underneath a common Altes crowntainer.

Why drive 12 hour one way to dig Pre-Tax Tru Blu ales, Genny 12 Horse Longopeners, Gamecock Ales, Apollos, Neuweilers Bock, and Krueger’s Baldies when you can locally drive 10 hours round trip and dig Pfeiffer, Goebel, Drewrys and Strohs?
