So I was asked the other day how to remove the rust off of small parts. I use my beadblaster but before I had a beadblaster I use to use a wire brush. But today I'm going to show you the easiest way for the DIY guy. Go buy some chrome wheel cleaner, liquid form. Empty bottle into container and drop your parts in. 24 hrs later use a brass brush or any wire brush you have and scrub the surface after. You may or may need to soak parts longer, but let the product do the work. Once happy with results rinse with water, dry then your ready to prime your parts. Anyway here's a before and after pic of a front retainer clip.
