I'd love to know because alodine is such a PITA in some area's, and they're too cheap at work to buy the no rinse alodine markers.
I hung around Bellville a lot as a boy and in my teens!! I worked for Flying Tigers and British Airways at Metro for a spell in the 70s and would take Zinc oxide home to use on my hot rod frames LOL!!!

Stroker, I was a member of the Piston Pushers down there years ago!
And had my horses at Circle K Ranch in the 60s!

We used Alodine on the Rolls Royce Parts when I was at "Antique Motor Car" (Plymouth Mich) in the 70s and then used Zinc oxide.
