Proper automotive rust repair
A quick video that follows a rust repair I did on my daughter's car. The
right way of dealing with rust is cutting it out and welding new metal in,
no other method will yield any lasting repair. And no, rust can not be
neutralized completely on a car, there are just too many places you can't
reach... No miracle product, no shortcuts....its just a long process...
Don't ask about price, I don't do those kinds of repairs commercially,
there is just no way to make money with those at a fixed price...

Using citric acid for rust removal
Citric acid can be bought from drugstore (they use it in jelly or such to
adjust acidity) but it is very expensive there. Therefore Finnish rodders
buy it from some agriculture-store. It is not expensive. Officially it is
used as pigs obstruent! I dipped those parts in citric acid for overnight,
next day brushed it with wirebrush and flushed it with water. Then again
back to citric acid over night and wirebrushed + flushed it next day.
Flushing is important, you'll want to get all acid away, otherwise steel
will turn to yellow.
You can't use this method on all parts because of hydrogen embrittlement.
So no pedals, frames, brake drums, engine blocks or such to citric acid!!!
And yeah, parts should be clean -I've cleaned 'em with fuel- because grease
will neutralize acid. Ratio was 3%
Parts must be dried soon as you get them flushed, I quess you guys know
