03-05-2007 07:00 PM Rust Removal part 3
Plugged in the battery charger and within 10 minutes you could start seeing some bubbles being produced around the steel bars and from the center. I let the piece sit overnight in the solution and pulled it out the next day. I was pretty clean, 20 seconds with a stainless hand brush and I was ready for self etching primer. I think I'm going to try to make a larger container and try to do some larger pieces.

I am using a small 3 amp trickle charger i bought at a garage sale for a couple of bucks still unsure of not blowing myself up. I took the rusty master cylinder that I will use for my clutch slave and you can see how rusty it is. Put a piece of stainless tig rod to it and connected the negative battery charger post on it and submerged it in the water being sure not to touch the outside electrodes.

Was reading a article in a rodding mag about removing rust with wash soda and a battery charger and decided to try it to see if it worked. Got a 5 gallon pail and clipped six pieces of 3/8" steel rod I had lying around and connected them with some copper wire. Added 2 gallons of water and 4 tablespoons of wash soda, found mine at Canadian Tire in the swimming pool supplies purchased it for $ 4.00.

We finally got into our first car show, minus my truck due to my illness, looks alright and we have a graveyard team and some of the biggest are buried. Boyd, Jimmie Shine, Jesse James and Paul Tuttle Senior.

Been checking out different sites lately and have a hard time identifying what the conglomeration of parts are. I would like my fellow rodders to take a look and see if they know. I think the front is a 1933 Chevy coupe not sure but seen a picture of one firewall and it appears to look the same, It is a three part bolted firewall with a fuel tank which is separate not like a ford. The back I think is a dodge not quite sure. Hopefully someone knows what the different parts are.
Thanks
