Default hot wheels before & after

I dug up a hot wheels car yesterday and after a brushing off decided to tumble it in my tumbler. I put it in with no medium and just warm water & dish soap. The results are as shown in the pics. It says made in Vietnam for McD on the bottom.

Nice find, I love finding metal toys old or newer.
