The issue with paint is true to a point but if you use a caustic like Red Devil Lye mixed in the tank the paint becomes a non issue. There are lots of suggestions on the web on this subject.
I plan on setting up a small electrolysis system once we get moved to Kentucky so I can refurbish parts for our Triumph sports cars.
