Rust Remover

Needless to say, I am a skeptic when it comes to ads about products, but for the money, I had to try this stuff. All I can say it is incredible. My project has surface rust and I was going to get it sandblasted. I thought before I did that, I would try this product for $12.99 a quart. WOW! It really works and is easy,quick to use. I did 2 control arms this morning in about 1/2 hour. Look at the before / after results.

If I tell you, I have to kill you then. All kidding aside, it is called 3X Rust Dissolver and, I did make a mistake, it is $13.99 per quart. I bought it from Speedway, part number 307-99024, and I can't say enough good about it. The stuff really works. I have a whole lot of surface rust on my whole project just from sitting. Has never been outdoors, but sitting unprimed and unpainted. I didn't even have to wire brush or anything. I bought a whole pack, 20, of cheap 2" foam brushes from Wally World (Wal-Mart) for $3.97 Bruch this stuff on and you can immediately see it dissolving the rust. I let it sit about 1/2 hour, keeping it wet as directed on the bottle. When all is dissolved, I use paper towels to wipe off. Then wipe off again with mineral spirits. Walla. ready to prime. By the way, I did my whole rear axle housing, 4 bars, 2 brake drums and 2 front control arms on just a little less than a quart. That also included practicing first on some old scrap pieces of metal.

Derusted axle housing

Here are some pics of my rear axle housing when I first tested the stuff. You can see the difference on the 4 bar and housing

I buy 5 pound bags of citric acid (used in food processing grade) and it works well. The mix I like is 1 pound to 5-gallons of water. And it is CHEAP.


I've dipped control arms, bumper brackets, loads of small parts (in a pool skimmer basket) and after a few days the rust washes off easily with a plastic brush.


I use old cat litter plastic containers and have a bigger 20-gallon Rubbermaid tub. I did the front of my hood recently in a bigger container (under the bed storage unit).


But whatever you find and share helps us all.

Thanks for sharing. I guess there are other things out there, but I saw this and said, what the Hell, I will not be out that much if it doesn't work. Hopefully, I will have my chassis finished by next week and can go on to assembly, of the complete chassis. Then, in the fall and winter, work on getting the body set up properly. Hope the results I see now, with my running gear, shows with the rest of the car.

OK. Got all of the suspension components, derusted primered and painted.Going up to Bassett Wheel, tomorrow, to pick up my mock up for the front wheels. Problem is now, being the suspension is all apart, I cannot mount the wheel for fitment. Hopefully, I will start, Friday, derusting the chassis and primer/paint in within a few days. that way, next week, if all goes well, I'll be able to start reassembling the drive line and then I can start the plumbing work, you know, fuel line, brake lines, etc. I can really see progress now. Here are 2 of my finished control arms. The other two are still drying

Thanks for the encouragement. Just got back from Bassett Wheel Company, with the mock-up wheel for my front wheels. What a great company to deal with. The plan is to start tomorrow, derusting my frame. Hopefully, I will have it derusted, primed and painted, next week sometime.

OK. I use cheap, cheap Wally World 2" foam brushes, 20 for $3.97. Apply the dissolver, let it do it's magic, wipe off with rags or paper towel and let dry a few minutes. Then I wipe off again with mineral spirits or acetone. Let dry, prime and paint. Easy and quick.
