Rust Pitting, Help!

I'm sanding surface rust off with a DA and theres still some
light pitting. I found plain old white vinegar cleans them out
really good. Is this a no no?

No its not.

It must be very minor flash rust for the vinegar to work.
Vinegar also works very good on aluminum as an etch/cleaner.
However the vinegar must be washed off with water, so plan on coating when washed and blow-dried.

Thank's Mr.K

I have a 67 Cougar I started on, and it was primed with laq.
primer years ago. How many, I don't know. Started sanding
the top and it came off pretty easy. Got lots of little pits in
the top, so far I expect the rest of the car to be the same.
I work at home and I was gonna go get some pool acid to
etch it. I had a gallon of white vinager under the sink. I tried
it out and it seemed to work pretty darn good. I know this
might sound unprofessional, but that's ok. Any advice will be
listened to, and welcomed. Thank's KeithP
