I cannot say enough about this product; it is probably some of the best stuff that I have ever found. It's used by the military extensively, and since it works on ALL oxides, it's got a huge fanbase in gunsmiths for stripping bluing. I'll probably post up a review eventually, but it is some damn impressive stuff.
I've used a wire brush mounted on a super fast drill, and than i used a super fine small wire brush mounted on a dremel to have access in those lil holes,,,
than, I've painted it with a rust-oleum spray can,,,its only surface rust, so don't wary unless u live by the proper beach...
Ok so took care of the rust problem. First I tried the Evapo-Rust stuff. After about 24hrs of treatment it took off most of the rust on some of the smaller stuff that I could soak. Nut/bolts etc. But on the bottom triple I had to apply it with a soaked paper towel and covered it with syran wrap. It didn'd do much good really.
So I masked off the surrounding parts of the bike and picked up some Rustoleum spray paint. At first I tried a primer that matched the color pretty well. I figured it would look fine. But after it dried it was way too light for my taste. So I used a glossy light gray and it came out great.
I also primed and painted the black cage that routes the wires/cables and mounts the blinkers and headlight. It had a few rust spots and since it's kinda thin AND a pain in the ass to get to, I figured I'd paint it while I had the chance. I painted it a semi-gloss black. I really wish the gray came in a semi-gloss. But I think it all came out ok.
