Done Slolwly over Couple Months bit by bit for very Little Money.
Why I have described the above Preservation Treatment not a Restoration Treatment is I read previously you mentioning your Rusty Chassis.
Once steel has been Well and Evenly Rusted then Converted it becomes the most long lasting n toughest rust prevention treatment. Iron ships, NY skyscrapers all done this way.
Also talk off rendering down these fine machines like an unfortunate beached whale Upsets me.
All the best
First, may I say that I love your username.
Second, I am so glad you brought this up because I thought the rust was a much more difficult problem than you suggest. I called several companies that I thought would do this for me, and both said they wouldn't. To this day I don't really understand their reasoning, and frankly, I can't remember what they said anymore. The problematic rust is in the brake lines that need to be rebuilt. But on the axles and elsewhere it still looks pretty superficial to me.
One thing I've found is that mechanics on the West Coast are a lot more nervous about dealing with rust that those elsewhere. It just seems like a foreign animal to them and they tend not to want to deal with it. At least that's been true in my experience.
Since I have a lot on my plate these days, the likelihood of my doing it is slim, but not impossible. But it's enormously helpful to hear what you have to say about it because it gives me hope! Maybe I can pass this hope onto someone else who will, as they say, Just Do It!
I'm leaning farther and farther away from taking the motyho apart, so I think you can rest easy.
Thanks so much again!
