Restoration projects don't have to be big, complex undertakings. Why not spruce up a toy like this Nylint Roadster die-cast car from the 1960s? Watch as the rusty, worn-out toy car gets a new lease on life with a bit of time, effort and attention to detail.

What's the smallest thing you've ever restored?

real deal around 1967:
