    Holy cow what a great find. I don't blame you for wanting to keep it as is. What a beauty ! John
  3. Oh I didnt know that. Thank you for pointing this out. I see your point. E tanking these wouldn't be a good idea seeing as stainless steel etc produce toxic by products and I imagine the cad plating would be equally as nasty so e tanking would be a bad idea in this case. I know that John Sartain has used a molasses bath to strip rust on his running boards. I wonder if molasses might be a safe alternative?
  4. If you have a part that is frozen up , I have had really good luck freeing up frozen Wheel Horse tractor rear lift cables and "vintage" dirtbike rear brake cables etc. using my electrolysis tank. Another big plus is that the part will come out rust free and usually most if not all the paint that might be on it will be removed as well. You will need to clean / wire brush the part really well when it comes out and give it a good rinsing to get the old crud off . Once cleaned and rinsed the part will start to form rust almost immediately so you have to make sure to oil it or prime it.... something to protect it. E tanks work incredible for removing rust on parts that are rusty but in otherwise usable condition. I also have used it to remove rust from old cast iron skillets and dutch ovens that I have picked up at yard sales etc. They come out bright and clean. Just a thought. John

    Happy Thanksgiving Plymouthy and everyone else.I hope yall enjoy your family, friends and the feast. Each day is a reason to be thankful and today is a day we can be thankful together while chowing down on a great meal and lots of pie.... and even grits of your so inclined Margo and I are going to be celebrating Thanksgiving on Sunday . Margo is the overnight assistant manager and like so many who work in retail she will be coming home from work anytime now get a few hrs sleep then back to work for "Black Friday " or "blitz" as it is called by Walmart employees. Im roasting a Turkey for her to take to work for the associates to munch on. I must say it was a rather strange turkey as it had two necks in it. Thats the last time I buy a Chernobyl brand turkey I'll tell ya ! John

    Got a non vehicle hobby? Like knitting?

    I'm a Civil War artillery reenactor. I used to portray do cavalry until I broke my back. No more riding horses. You can't see me very well in the second picture thru the muzzle flash, just my butternut trousers and checkered shirt. Im the one in the checkered shirt firing the mountain howitzer. In case anyone is wondering ,yes there was a Civil War battle that happened in Arizona or what was back then known as the New Mexico Territory . The Battle of Picacho Pass. It was the western most battle of the Civil war and it happened about midway between Tucson and Phoenix a little east of what is now I -10 . PS, yes its hot wearing a pair of wool trousers and dark blue wool sack coat in the summer

    The spaghetti probably would have heated up sooner if we had been driving a Pinto. John

    Seeing Mack the Fingers post reminds me of a very fond memory of my Mom Dad and I from when I was about 10. We lived in Tucson and we took a little day trip into the desert not far from where I live now to look for "Desert Roses" . Dad brought come Chef Boyardee spaghetti with us to eat for lunch. Well he forgot to bring something to heat it on . So he too the hubcap off our car it was a Vega so no loss there and built a first under it . Then he set the opened can on top of it and let it heat up. After a few minutes I look at the can and the heat had made the contents of the can rise up in a tall spaghetti column like a push pop almost to the point of collapsing onto the hubcap and ground. I brought it to my Dads attention and he hurriedly poked a the wedge shaped end of the still new/ unused tire iron lug wrench into it to shove it back into the can all the time laughing . Dad was a hoot. One night when Mom was at my Aunts house next door Dad decided to make his own corn nuts. He drained and salted a can of hominys and put them on a flat cookie sheet type thing and put them into the toaster oven to roast and get crunchy. Long story short.... after a while all of the sudden they started to explode like firecrackers just as Mom walked in the front door. Dad wasnt allowed to use the kitchen for a while after that. I sure do miss them both. John
