I picked one up in need of attention also- cleaned out the rust and scale on the reverse flow plate with a wire brush and scraper-also any scale in the inside and cooking racks-fired it up with a small fire and coated the whole inside with lard- your firebox could use some new paint - then a light coat of lard-give it a coat every time you cook-I coat the whole outside with lard(cooking chamber and firebox) when it starts looking dull and looses its shine-give it some elbow grease and you will be suprised at how well it comes back to shape -
