    I used it under the floorboards for rust on my rig. Just wondering if anyone ever uses it here.

    I also just sprayed some on my axles last night to get rid of some rust.

    Also wanted to check if it can cause any harm.

    Thanks,

    It was kinda hard to find. Orchard supply had it but I had to find it myself b/c no one knew what I was talking about. After a 1/2 hour of asking around, I just went to the chemicals section and found some. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    It's hard to find good help these days! /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif The people that work at our local hardware store don't know anything about anything. They always have a blank look on their faces when I ask for something like a Torx bit or even a U-Bolt...

    Yup...used it on an old hay-wagon frame. Worked great. John Deere Green over the top /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    If you've got an Ace Hardware near you...go there. If the store doesn't stock it, they can at least order you some from the warehouse.

    I don't think you want to leave it on for a long time, as it might be hard to remove.

    Really? I just sanded it down on my truck and then painted over it. Is that bad?
    Will it eat up the metal at all?

    There isn't one near by but I know I can find one somewhere around here b/c I've seen 'em. Thanks for the info., that's good to know.

    I used to work on a boat and we would use it, we would rinse it off with water let it dry and then paint it.It should say on the can how to use....as long as you removed all of it the paint will stick. I bought a sandblaster for $40.00 that i use to remove rust, messy but get the job done.

    <font color="green"> Yep, I use it quite a bit, the stuff works great. You're supposed to rinse it with water after you wipe it off. Follow it up with some metal etch and the paint will stick like crazy. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif </font color>

    Home Depot here in Rochester carries it, or at least they did a year ago. (haven't checked since then)
