    Is my kid (and in the derivative: me) screwed?

    Picked up some econo. boots for my eldest son's bubba feet at the swap. Got them in the gear room and noticed the following oxidization as I set all the buckles for storage. Replace? Buff and oil? Halp?

    1) Wire wheel loose rust
    2) Flap disc down to bare metal
    3) POR15
    4) scuff sand POR15 when dry
    5) top coat
    6) wet sand
    7) second top coat
    8) clear coat
    9) polish
    10) wax


    Or, just ignore it.

    Ignore it. If that causes any problem before your kid turns 21, PM me and I will replace it.

    Brush off loose rust, spray with 50/50 mix of vinegar and water. Let sit several hours to half day. Clean off mixture and call it good.
    watch out for snakes

    I don't know... I still think if you don't put on at least four coats of paint, it's pretty much hopeless.

    You know I thought of that, but once it's in your mom's mouth there is nothing that can be done to stop her from imbibing it.

    Let's see the toe and heel lugs (boot soles) on those thrashed boots.. That could actually be a problem if they're anywhere near as worn as the rest of those shells look.
    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!
