After the rings are brushed up good will be taping off the rings and apply this 'end-rust' product. I have tried several types of this stuff in the military and working off-shore and have had mixed results on various metals. If you are painting over it they are all about the same. Sometimes it turns rust a cool looking dark brown and sometimes you never know what color you will end up with.

Got a box of goodies from Vics 66 in today. Kind of like an early Christmas, in more ways than one. How many places still send out free full color catalogs? Kind of like being 8 again and flipping through the Sears Christmas catalog.

Evaporust is a non-haz product that removes rust and does not harm glass. You can pour the Evaporust into a pan and then soak the rings in the liquid. It works wonders with no nasty odor and no acid.

I believe you suggested that before, and I know we have some in my shop somewhere. Thanks model72 will use it instead.

I'm 44 and know what you mean.

This afternoon I worked on removing the 'tree' from the top of the pump.

This is all I needed to get it done. Yep, that's a lie. I also needed several doses of Liquid Wrench and a 'cheater bar' about 3 ft long.

So to be honest I'm not sure how the light 'bars' attach to the tree after passing through the cup. I will figure out something but if someone could post a pic or two of one they have it would be appreciated.

Not sure how I will remove what is left of the conduits.

Going to put the tree through the ultrasonic cleaner a few times in the monring and see what it looks like then.

The tree was so rusted up it took a while but finally got the pass through from the bottom to the side cleared out enough to put a big zip tie through

Interesting design.

It is going to be a trick top mark the bolts holes for the rear door to be mounted. Almost no room from the front to the back at the top and bottom.

If anyone knows a quick and easy trick for this please let me know.

To remove the threaded conduit pieces from the tree. I would take a hacksaw blade and insert it into the conduit and slowly by hand cut thru the conduit. Then repeat 180 degrees across from the first cut. Once you have done that, use a chisel to fold in the conduit at the cuts. It will come out of the tree in two pieces.

Been watching from the beginning. A friendly suggestion, either type your name at the end of each post or have it in your signature...Some of us have unique handles. But I refuse to call you F40LM....just sayin'

LOL. I understand, just my favorite car of all time I use it on a couple of forums. So now it is just easy for me to remember.
