Rat Rod rust making.

Just yesterday my wife and I were walking around a little local car show and I was explaining to her the fake "patina" crap along with the creation of rust. I found myself this morning welding a patch back onto this door to sell on craigslist and it stood out so much with the ground welds I didn't want to paint it because the rest of it looks to "rat rod" I figured it would sell to one of them. I went and googled how to make rust and I ended up kicking some butt! WOW, how about hydrogen peroxide, white vinegar and salt. LOL The SECOND this perfectly clear fluid hit that bare metal it was orange! I applied it a few times as they suggested and wham, we got rust.

No mind you, I LOATH the fake patina look, I am just fascinated how you can rust something fast, very interesting.

Rat rod

Ironic isn't it that one group is trying to make rust and another group is trying to do away with it. Neat process tho.

The guy that does the 'rust'oration for American Picker's Mike Wolf seems to have that figured out. His repairs blend in pretty well, if you like that look.

Martin, If you want a really cool look, weld you panels in with silicone bronze MIG or TIG, then grind it all clean. Use the mix that you already used this time and it makes a neat effect. We done a 70 F100 this way, welding in all the patch panels with silicone bronze and even Gas welded a few with brass, so it would have the look of several repairs over time. Ill try to remember how to load pictures and post them.
