    Yep, Home Depot still sells them. And it worked great.

    It's usually operator error when it is said that it sucks. Read and follow the instructions :p: !

    I've only used it a couple of times, with good results, several years back. It contains products, known by the state of california, that can cause cancer. :thumb: I'd use it again if I had a need.

    Mine was just mostly surface stuff, with some small spots that were getting a little flakey and deep. It was on the tailgate of my old K5, an 84. I noticed the trim comming off one day, and the next it was gone. When I stated cleaning up the area to repaint it minus the trim, I notice some rust had been hiding under there, where it had not contacted the sheetmetal for a while. Turned out to be a little bigger "quick fix" than i had planned, but at least it got done correctly.

    That single trim part, just under the tailgate insert just hold water, and will eventually cause rust in my opinion.

    Anyway, I cleaned it up really well, and used the NJ... primered and painted. It was a two tone, so I just carried the middle color down the rest of the gate, like they did on the later K5's.

    Rust dissolver.

    You have to paint it immediately after or it will re-rust twice as fast.

    Well, since you live in Texas you should be fine :thumb: . Just don't use it in California, or you might end up getting cancer :eek1: :doah:.
