Re: Bring a Trailer

What problems is BaT having? Looks like Hemmings is copying what BaT created with a slightly different interface, and charging a lot more money for cars in certain price ranges.

Re: Teenager cleaning flathead electrolysis

Re: Clay bar

Yes, I use both the Nanoskin wash mitt and their sponges, which are essentially the same thing and definitely prefer them to clay bars.

Neither clay, nor the synthetic alternative will harm the 35...

Re: Clay on lacquer paint

No different than on enamel or urethane. Keep it wet while working, if you drop it on the ground throw it away.

Re: Surface rust in Houston

Try Boeshield T-9, it works VERY well keeping surface rust off of bare metal. I have a cast iron bellhousing that I sprayed it on after blasting and it still doesn't have a spec of rust three years...

Re: Recommend an infrared thermometer for me.

I've never seen one that doesn't work well, but I would assume that some will last longer than others. Also, even if they are off a few degrees, they are fantastic diagnostic tools.

Re: Citric acid derusting project begin

I used about 10 gallons, with each half of the block in the solution for about 12 hours and it worked very well. Plus, it's reusable so it all went in to two five gallon buckets for future use.

Agree about the chelating agents. Rust911 is $59.00 for a jug of concentrate that makes 16 gallons.
