Good how to. I use muratic acid/water 50:50 mix often on smaller parts. Don't put any Pot Metal in it though. Don't ask how I know... Molasses/water 1:10 mix works without harming metal. Molasses from the local Co-Op mixed with water in a 55 gal drum. Takes a lot longer but I put lots of parts through it and leave them in for weeks sometimes. There are some YouTube videos of guys putting whole car fenders in molasses/water, even whole old steel car bodies in it. YouTube is where I found it.
DAMN buddy those look GREAT
I wonder if this would take some of the shine off my brand new rear wheels?
plain old vinegar will remove rust, it's slow but cheap. the parts need to be submerged
That's amazing. When I saw the thread title I thought maybe it was another "DONK" thread LOL "Submit article: How to ruin a Classic Mopar in 4 easy steps"
Vinegar will also remove metal as quickly as it does the rust.I tried it once and it turned a bunch of rusty bolts into a bunch of scrap metal after it ate all the treads off.Now I only use molasses and no issues even if I leave the parts submerged for weeks. Another handy tip for using molasses...if the mix is cold (like mine now is as I keep it outside due to the smell) it works very slowly but warming it up to around 70F with a cheap fish tank heater will make it work much faster.
i must stress that you need to neutralize the newly dipped items to a baking soda/water bath or some other Ph basic neutralizer, let dry and coat with something. Evaporust, Primer, Rutoleum, paint, etc. The bare metal will just be a flash rust time bomb. Evaporust can be left on for storage.
