Default vinegar rust removal

learned a new trick I thought I would share , if you get any steel parts that are rusted and hard to clean with a wire brush or wheel , throw them in a container and cover them in apple cider vinegar (the yellow stuff) and put the lid on , takes 1-2 days but the parts come out like brand new.

After you remove them from the vinger, be sure and get the vinger off, because I have also used it to make rust, too.

Thanks for the tip 24d. I've got just the thing I want to try that on, some plug wire covers for a pair of Chrysler valve covers I have. Do you use it full strength?

It is a pretty weak acid, I think 7% or something like that, it should work fine full strength. Just rinse it well after you are done.

Default Even Stronger

I use Mauradic Acid (green pool acid) threw something a container half acid half water and in about 2-3 hours presto brand new....warning dont put any thing in thats pot metal.....it will disapear. I could have sworn I put 2 sets of GTO hood scoops in there?
But Tripper dont worry I only use the acid to pre clean things that arn't going to be visable on the cars....I leave the beutiful mother natures paint job just the way it is

Default Sometimes you must bust the rust!

I tried the Apple Cider Vinegar on some headlight parts. It worked great on the rim screws and bulb socket. I left the parts in for two days, then I gave them a quick rinse with water and dried them with a paper towel. Good as new! well not new, but rust free! The vinegar was black! Thanks for the tip.
