Restoration Tips & Techniques / Re: de rusting parts

     If vinegar works then I'd suggest trying citric acid. It needs to be added to warm/hot water. Not very active at room temperature & doesn't have a strong smell.  Comes as white granular like sugar. Very common, can be bought cheaply thru restaurant supply stores, EBay carries it or as a dishwasher additive named Lemishine. Really great at cleaning water spots off of dishes & flatware. If you have hard water, run a load or two using it instead of soap.

Restoration Tips & Techniques / de rusting parts

As a test I filled a 5 gallon pail with 4.5 gallons of white vinegar then submerged my rusty oil pan for 2 days at which time we took it out and used a nail brush to clean the treated metal . Once again I placed the pan in the vinegar for 1 more day.

The results are quite dramatic , pristine bare metal remains.

My first thought was to media blast but that would run the risk of sand getting trapped and causing problems later.

This idea seems to work better than my $100 jug of evapo- rust and cost only $10.

My next test will be all my rusty bolts , nuts , washers ect.

Good for you.  I used to go surfing ' Polar Bear Dip ' on New Years Day also a tradition.  Stopped doing that a while back.  Brian

Thanks Jeff
There is a paint code for "Dark Charcoal Metallic" that the restorer can use to arrive at the correct colour - it's paint code PPG/Ditzler #32586.

I stole this from another post you did on another site!!   :D

It can be difficult using 50 year old formulas

If you choose to use some of the current rattle cans or even some out of the can mixes many will strip off all the prior paint, lay down a couple of full coats of semi-gloss black and follow that will a couple of lighter coats of the Charcoal.  Be careful when painting textures surfaces as too much paint means less or no grain left and if you apply a too wet of a coat of the Charcoal - you will get a build up plus it can produce a glossy final look
