    I soaked these overnight (for 24 hours) and can say that the stuff works!

    That stuff really does a kickass job! I cleaned a hood latch assy and 2 hood brackets w/springs.
    I have a pic of the hood latch after it was coated with zinc chromate.

    Brett is that a LH and RH mount for chrome mirrors? They look the same.

    They are both the same and fit both sides, yes.

    Did you coat it or have it done? Is that something you could do with a spray bomb?

    I've heard molasses will do the same thing.

    Done.

    Not perfect but much better than before. No one will see them any way. :) 20180118_091719.jpg 20180118_091752.jpg

    Good then I just need a mount, screws and gasket if the RH is not different from the LH. Thanks

    That's correct.

    Todd Miller will have both types of screws (6 total) that you'll need.

    Believe it or not, White Vinegar will also eat rust. It might take a week or more for heavy rut -- but it really does work and a gallon is $2. I keep a little plastic cottage cheese container full that I toss old bolts, etc in as well as a big pan for larger parts.

    I use it and then run it through a paint screen before putting it back in the plastic jug for next time. After it has worked its magic I usually wash the part (to get the acid off) and coat with Ospho to prevent any flash rust and to be sure I've neutralized even the rust that you can't see.

    And... when you are done you can pour it on the weeds in your yard for added value!
