The main wiki rust article is here: Rust.
All of this is covered in the article, but, to summarize:
1. The use sand for media blasting body panels is controversial. Thus, sandblasting per se is frequently advised against. Media blasting is frequently recommended, and here's a wiki article on it: Media blasting.
2. Muriatic acid causes hydrogen embrittlement, which makes metal brittle and prone to cracking. Thus, it's not recommended for rust removal.
3. The use of rust encapsulation products (like POR-15) is also controversial in hotrodding. We have a wiki article on such products here: Rust encapsulators.
4. We also have a wiki article on pitted rust. Here: Pitted rust.
I have noticed that there are some concerns surrounding soda blasting. I've just started a wiki article on that topic. Here it is: Soda blasting. Please feel free to add to the soda blasting article, or any of the others. Thanks!
