Minor dilemma

Post by Geordie Ross » Sat May 05, 2012 5:31 pm

Ok so I got the Barnett Pappenheimer rapier with some form of rust damage, I put a good coat of ren wax on it last night but I want to try and polish the rust off with brasso, basically will the ren wax effect the brasso?
Here's some pics to show you what I mean :|
Any help would be appreciated!

more likely the brasso will effect the ren wax looks like the rust has gone gone but theres the pits
left behind caused by the rust now the only way to remove them is to use 1000 grit wet and dry wet of course
then say 1500 wet and dry wet again till they are gone and an hours worth of work with maquiers all metal polish
to bring it up to a high gloss finish
