Default Re: Rust Removal

I spent a couple of hours today doing rust removal on the cruiser I'm starting. I thought it was going to be worse. I used a combination of #0000 steel wool and a 50/50 mix of white vinegar and lemon juice. Dip the steel wool, work the metal, wipe with a wet cloth, wipe with a dry and keep going. When I finished each one I covered them in Turtle Wax, and then polished it off.

Here are some of the pics from the job. The back fender, left side had rust all the way up, I started taking pics when I saw how easily the clean up was going. The order is Before/After/Polished.


Any day that starts with a good ride is already a better day, and a bad day riding still beats a good day working.
