Honest mate, I thought it was an april fool thing, and was expecting nothing...But one rusty brake disk, and a overnight's worth of sitting in vinegar and the rust just wiped off like dirt....Some of the more serious stuff takes a bit of scrubbing, but it still came up like new...Globbits said:Is that for real?! It can't be THAT easy can it?!
I know vinegar's pretty meaty stuff, but a couple of days dipping, followed by a quick paint to stop them corroding again and that's all?! CAN'T be that easy?!
Hmmm, it would be possible I suppose, but you need to leave stuff soaking for 24 to 48 hours, and it would be a major PITA to get up in the middle of the night to keep on brushing on vinegar to parts all the time...stemoovw said:wonder if it would work on big bits if you keep brushing it on?
who are 'they' ? do 'they' have a link ? sounds like bad science to me.Globbits said:I think my only concern about the electrolytic process is that there are implications that it changes the chemical nature of the top-layer of the metal. With high-impact stuff, like bits of my car, I'm not sure I'd want to change the metal's properties - 'specially if what they're saying is it makes stuff brittle!
