Water can restoration help needed

Post by 42GPW » Sat Nov 17, 2018 7:20 pm

I picked up a 42 dated soup can today. The inside is rusty and the metal is still thick and strong. How can i get this back to food grade use? Should i have it acid dipped? And plastic line it? I need 5 total in potable food grade safe use.
