Preserving Miss Belvedere

Dwight Foster of Ultra One is on a mission to preserve Miss Belvedere, a 1957 Plymouth Belvedere that was buried in a time capsule for Tulsa, Oklahoma's 50 anniversary in 1957. When the capsule was opened last year, instead of a shiny '57 Belvedere, they found a car covered with rust because the concrete vault had leaked. With a little patience, and rust remover, Foster is going to preserve the car for the future.

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 why...

How to Start a Yamaha after it's been left for years in the garden
Here we have a 1985 Yamaha FZ750. It is the very rare 2GH model as ridden by Eddie Lawson in the 1986 Daytona 200 to victory with full livery by Troy Lee Designs. Sadly it has been left for years outside in a garden with the sea air/rain on it with nothing but a sheet over it. I have removed the petrol tank to access the fuel supply and have repaired some of the faulty wiring which probably was the cause of this superbikes demise. I am now going to completely strip the bike down and restore her to her former glory. BAD LANGUAGE while I welcome constructive comments, I will not tolerate foul language, swear words and any racist or other comments which may be deemed offensive to some people If you make any such comments that comment will be removed and you will be reported to YouTube my channel is viewed by young and old alike, please bear this in mind. Kind Regards, John OHanlon.
