Sometimes that happens but you also got handle them carefully when fresh out of the ground meaning no wiping, no wrapping in newspaper or towel or rolling around in your back seat ect, ect.

So what do you consider "right" ?

letting sit for a month to dry out. if you wipe the dirt off while it's fresh from the ground good chance paint or ACL is coming off with it. That's mostly if pulled from wet moist dirt from being buried. if its sat on the surface for past 40 years then it's had 40 years to dry out & your not likely to have a problem then. SO, What is the method you use??????????
