just had time to listed to #142 and #143 -I just used a product called evaporust – found it in Pigeon Forge / Gatlinburg TN – now I see that Harbor freight or Northern tool and equipment sells it too. – I had a plane I was refurbishing and (with nothing to lose) I dropped the cap in – VIOLA! I pulled it out – NO rust!
Now, with that said – this cap was scaly rust so I left it in 24 hours and it came out a great looking grey – washed it off and dried it completely – I noticed it had kind of a funny color but 24 hours later it seemed to settle down and looks really good!
I would believe some people may not be happy with the results – but I suggest to try it on something you don’t care about before using on something you do!
