Heres the rest
The problem with media blasting is the sand/media gets everywhere so the last pic is of the only blaster that I use at my little shop it works great for getting the pits cleaned as long as theres not to much...this little spot blaster is nice because the media gets sucked back into the bag and reused insted blowing everywhere...it comes with different attachments so you can do things like door edge lips etc....

[QUOTE=Lizer;1698320]I soaked a socket for 20 minutes tonight. I found the socket rolling around in the mustang gas tank after I must have dropped it in there 4 years ago. It was covered in rust. I was surprised to see the rust came off--as expected--but the chrome on the socket was left completely intact. I was thinking it might eat away the chrome. Socket looks brand new now except for the pits.[/QUOTEThat's great if you don't want a new tank use the rust remover to clean it out and use the Mastercoat sealer in the orange can to seal the tank. There's a step-by-step on the website. Keep in mind nothing beats a new tank but if you're on a budget or the tank is a one-of-a-kind this is the way to cure the problem.Thank you all for the favorable remarks it's appreciated.Uncle Pat

Mike, don't let the metal turn black when it does that it means you left on too long

I'll go in today and no more playin around I'll do one fender with the master series rust remover and the other with ospho to see if ones faster or easier than the otherso far I'm having better luck with the Ospho but only by a little bit,it could be just because its what I'm used too...
So before I get started how about telling me how you would do this fender Pat and I'll follow your directions to a tee...So far it seems like all the steps I use with Ospho also work with the MS ...I spray it on (pump bottle) let it sit a few minutes respray it and wire wheel it spray it again and wipe it off let it dry and repete...I did everything the same with both and the ospho side is a little cleaner but one more app of the MS would even things out I'm sure....
On my computor ,if I click one of the thumbnail pics it gets bigger and if I click it again I can zoom in on the pits and get a close look at how clean they are.These are a little fuzzy but the third pic (i think its the third) gives the clearest closeup. Actually the first one is the best..

Looking good! So rinsing it with water gets it cleaner?

It does seem to help a bit after the second app. but it rubs me wrong putting water on it...I wiped it dry (kinda dry) with a paper shop towel and imediately sprayed some more fresh ospho over it ,I hope the ospho dont trap any moisture in there when it drys...
The water bit didnt help much with the MS "uncle Pats" remover There are slight differences in these two products....I dont think you can dip parts in Ospho and get them clean,but I've never tried it...so as of right now I actually like both products and may start using both...'llI wait to see how the epoxy sticks before making up my mind

Theoretically the bare metal should last longer with the MS since it has a zinc phosphate coating. Someone needs to compare the two in the elements...it might take awhile. But hey, the longest single experiment I ever did took an entire year!

Just to update on my going ons, I'm still using the same bowl of MS for soaking clips and bolts that I originally started out with. It's getting pretty dirty and has lots of junk in it that settles to the bottom, but I'm on 4-6 rounds of bolts and clips now. Each time I soak about 6-8 rusty, greasy bolts. Its potency is appearing to die off only minimally, if at all. I read it also has detergent action so now I've just been dropping in dirty, lightly greasy/grimy bolts straight in. They come out like they're new. For moderately or very greasy bolts I think I'd clean them first. I might attempt to filter or strain this solution at some point.

I spotted the guys in the paint shop wiping down the bare metal around a repair on a car before primer with "wet wipes" and investigated, this is regarded as an "etch" primer before the urethane!

Sikkens...I'm sure it's very affordable! I was originally using their 1K Washprimer CF also linked on that page, and it was flash rusting right through, so I sanded it off and said enough of that.
