    So here is the primer and first coat on them. Wish I had taken a before picture, but believe me, they were in bad shape. I sanded them well, primed with "lightly rusted/ painted/bare metal" rustoleum. And then rustoleum metal red. Letting the first coat cure, then I'll hit them again. The third can is in find condition paint-wise, but the paint is a bit darker than the newly painted ones. Not a big deal, but just an observation. However, the insides of the newly painted 2 are fairly delapidated. I guess I'll go with the paint thinner washout of the inside?

    The cans look good. I'd think you would want to do the inside first tho. Paint thinner or any other solvent you put in the can might ruin the exterior paint job.
