I tried it on a big piano style door hinge on Mrs Tripper's trailer door! Already tried a couple things to no avail! The 50/50 solution worked like a charm... I'm impressed!!!

Rust... Mother Nature's paint job... don't fool with Mother Nature!

Never tried the acetone mix...atf works great on it's own. Another tip I have employed storing carburetors...fill the float bowls with atf and all the gaskets will never dry out or shrink. When ready to use again simply empty and bolt on.
