Interesting, I used CLR, scotch pad, rise, soap wash, rise, compound, and sealer. As time passes the rust appears white. Sharing for others that may consider this treatment for original paint restoration
I use the Fluid Film as a substitute for Woody Wax on my boat. This is one of the best products ever. Lots of guys use as a rust inhibitor in body panel seams to preserve the metal and keep corrosion at bay. At the coast in the salt environment it gets applied to everything metallic exposed to the salt air.
I'll post up some pics of the area I did in this manner on a project Rosco and I have decided to leave in its "patina".
We have been using Fluid Film on all our plow trucks for years with great results combating the effects of road salt. One truck is a 1997 F350 PSD which is still on its original oil pan. This truck has seen every storm since it was new. Another 2002 F350 PSD original pan also plowed since new. I can't say enough good about Fluid Film.
Here's a few before shots of some 1973 vintage Ford Sequoia Brown. This guy had been stored in a tobacco barn for the last 20 years until I pulled it out a month ago.
The process on this so far has been Meg's 205 on a wool pad for the initial "cut", then on to Meg's 105 on a black foam pad and then finished with Meg's yellow carnauba wax. The hood and top ridges of the fenders have corrosion pitting on them due to lack of paint which is where I'll use the CLR steps and then on to the FF for those areas.
Thx for looking.
