OK Try this!
Put Your rosted metal in orange juice (a natural one) for 2 - 4 days, than wash the metal, You will see the rost is gone. (THIS IS NOT A JOKE)

Re: Rost on smal removable parts!

[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] Yep.....I can understand that.....the citric acid acted on the FE2O3X2H2O(rust) and made it come off. I once had an office desk with a kind of grey top which was sort of a soft material. It got real greasy and I never could get it clean. One day I spilled a cuppa coffee and what do you know.....the coffee got all the grease and crud off the desktop.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]

Guess what we Germans do if somebody get a bad stomache?
We give him warm coke with no bubbles (I don`t know the right word for it) and brezels. One hour later there are OK!!!
(again ..... this no joke!)

Your windsheld wipers are not working....I is raining like hell! What are You doing?
...Cut an apple in 1/2 and wipe the cutted have over Your windsheld....You will see the water somehow disapers in a smal film and You can clearly see for a longer while...

(But get the wipers fixed!!)

Re: Rost on smal removable parts!

[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] Are we going to get around to the trick of using pork rinds in the connecting rod bearings? Out here in Californey, we call that sort of stuff "Oaklahoma Fixes". [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] Hmmmm......I gotta remember that Apple idea. I can just stick my windsheild wiper arm in the apple halve and then just use that instead of a rubber wiper. In fact, the heavy duty version could use THREE apple halves on the wiper arm......sort of the truck and bus application.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]

Re: Rost on smal removable parts!

Question: Guess what I used to degrease Truck engines, frames, and running gear with while in Alaska?

Answer: Anyone care to guess?

Question: How do you clean your concrete for cheap?

Answer: Put a slurry of wood ash and water on the concrete, let it dry and brush it up... stain's gone.

Remember coffee and tea has tannic acid in it...a natural de-greaser.

Use vinegar to neutralize and de-grease bear metal before painting... the paint will stick better...

Good Jeepin'

Re: CJDave...now we started something!

We native Florida Crackers, use a potato half and rub down the windshield, when the wipers don't work. Also you can bake what is left on the exhaust manifold for later.

Happy Trails

Re: Rost on smal removable parts!

Pardon my lack of knowledge, but what's a "brezel"?

Re: Rost on smal removable parts!

[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] Doug,....I THINK Germans sometimes use that name instead of "pretzel" because the word pretzel came from "bracels" (sp)...(little arms)...since the pretzel resembled a person with their arms folded. I'm pretty sure that my explanation is at least somewhere near correct, but I offer it semi-conditionally until the true explanation is forthcoming.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]

Re: Rost on smal removable parts!

Hummm, I thought "pretzel" was a German word. I have German body and a French name, but my mind thinks in Texan. No wonder I can't get anything straight.
