rust removeer that works

Post by cueball86 » Thu Aug 18, 2011 2:38 pm

i recently bought a world war 2 ammo box. the inside ive cleaned till shine but i notice scuff marks from using sandpapper to remove the rust. i would rather try and keep the outside scuff mark free as i want to have it unpainted. if anyone can recommend a rust remover that works well and leaves something mostly scuff free i would be your bezzy mate for life! :mrgreen:

Up a creek without a paddle lol no idea, there's a rubber ish rust eraser but I doubt it would work, you could try a very fine sand paper bathed in wd40? don't really know sorry mate

Just wondering if you got your rust off your ammo boxes yet? And if so how? Lol

Liberon is something I've used in the past, with any liquid rust remover it will remove the brown rust and leave behind the black pitted metal so won't exactly clean the box, but it will deactivate any active rust cells, then I'd treat the box with the ren. wax we sell for 12 month protection.

An alternative to the wax is ACF-50 which is surprisingly delicate but it won't be dry to the touch.
