It was a common practice from the 40's on, in the military to freshen up the appearance of faded OD jeeps with a rub on of engine oil or we used to use a 1010 oil which was a light weight pickeling oil.

In Vietnam the drivers would often rub their vehicles down with diesel fuel. They looked great till they drove them down the dusty roads.

Heh.

I would suspect any oil coating would attract dust and dirt!

But boy, for a little while it would look great!

It was only meant for a short time of use. It was usually done when there were big inspections or big brass moving thru the unit.

Linseed oil dries up like a shellac. Who know what it will do after that. Probably will yellow and look terrible.

I have used linseed oil for aircraft work. It is the most common way to lube and corrosion proof the inside of chrome molly tubing used on fabric covered airplanes.

Lemon Pledge is good for a quick shine up, too.
