I'll bite...at only $23 for a gallon well worth the risk if it even comes close to doing what they say it will. I wonder if Lowes or Home Dep carries this stuff?
Thanks for the tip!

The ONLY way I will ever remove rust is with this stuff:
You pour it on, let it sit, what doesn't fall off by itself, you just literally wipe off with a rag. I know this sounds like magic/info-mercial, but this stuff is legit.

You asked about cleaning the rust,try OSPHO it will completly neutrlize the rust.
Its a phosphoric acid based product.

|godlemmy||if it's just surface rust try using C.L.R. it works on bathroom chrome.I have seen some posts on the HAMB where a guy used it on surface rust on his 60's chevy wagon. it came out great.on the plus side you will have a clean bathroom if it doesn't work out.also comes in small bottles, less $outlay.|

Cleaning dirty chrome
I had a '55 T-Bird with wire spoked wheels. I used the Eagle One Chrome & Wire Wheel Cleaning Kit with great results. It is a 2 part application, the first part being an acid cleaner that is left on for 30 seconds (I left it on longer the first time) then rinsed off. The second step is to spray the neutralizer on and let stand for at least 1 minute. Rinse again with water. The wheels looked like they were right out of the box new when done. Give it a try.

i saw on an australia site they soaked the part in brown MALT VINEGAR and it took the rust off....
that grille mesh is made reproduction in stainless steel.

Molasses is great to neutralize rust, but I've never heard of it doing anything to clean tarnish. If this is dirt and tarnish I doubt molasses will do much.

Somewhere I've seen an assortment of brushes that are shaped a few inches long and different widths from 1/4" up. That would help when working through the slots of the grill.
Also you might try Go Jo hand cleaner or lava soap.

Best bet is the molassas, get it from a Horse Tack shop. Also, a friend of mine makes amazing new inserts for Chevvy grilles of that era. Send him an email:

whats the worst that can happen?
you would be able to clean you wheels with it?

Here is a great product mild grit has the consistency of liquid polish, use with a buffer wheel 2.5 or 3.0 x 1/4 on an electric drill. I cannot tell but the grill looks rough. This polish will not remove chrome, just a cleaner.

|T-bucket23||How about a pressure washer with some detergent like simple green. If it is not rusty but just dirty, this should clean it off. hit it, let it sit to soak and hit it again.|

|Elevinpointsixtoone||Well, nothing seems to stand out as the clear winner but there are few things to try. I'd be more than happy to sit there and hand clean it but those curved deep cross bars are just about impossible to attack with any kind of scrubbing power.|
