Restoring my childhood Tonka "Mighty Dump" truck for the next generation. Watch this step by step "how to" for restoring a Tonka toy truck.
I got all nostalgic whith my first born on the way and decided to dig some of my old toys out to restore. First one up is the good ole Tonka dump truck. It had been played with a lot and was looking a little worse for wear but still in great shape all things considered for a restoration. I saw the "new" ones in the store but sadly they are almost all plastic now with just the dump box being metal. Check out both videos to see the progress and the finished project.
