Gearheadslife,
Powder coating is out of the question, this is going to be a 1941-1943 factory finish.

One other question to everybody. I've had some paint made up, see the photos below, which is slightly too light when compared to the original samples.
Can I simply add an amount of black to achieve a match and, if so, would a 60cc (60ml) sample bottle be sufficient to darken 500ml of the paint.

Cheers,
Tom.

I have a problem with my Lafette 42 restoration.
After stripping the paint and washing off the stripper I'm having big problems with corrosion. Now, I've got the Phosphoric Acid to get rid of the rust but the problem arises when I want to wash it off as it is basically water based and if I use water to wash it off then it just flash corrodes again, therefore, I wanted to use a spirit/oil based wash.

I've tried Nitro Cellulose, denutured alcohol but, of course, that is how I found out PA is water based as it does not mix, or rather, wash off.

Any ideas on how to wash off a water based rust killer without coroding the steel?

Tom.
