      No worries, you can always pull the vinegar out of the cupboard when the missus isnt looking at give it a test on an old heavily rusty bolt or something like that and see what you think. Maybe find a peice of thin rusted steel and test it out. Its always good to test things especially if its a product your not familiar with so you can have confidence so like you said you dont have to worry about stuffing up a non replaceable item.

      And to your question
      yer I do use the Ranex that way also for that bit of protection while its still baremetal so it doesn't oxidize after sitting and drying. I personally find it good to give it a wipe of Ranex after its come out of the bath and dried.

      No need to hide my home chemistry from my wife, she knows all the whacky shit I get up to. Eg. Wednesday we get a delivery with dry ice in it so there's usually mess when she gets home from work.

      I usually wax stuff up to protect it, but when the surface is rough you can't buff it and it looks like crap. I'll give the Ranex a go next time.

      Might be a bit stronger than the 99cents for 2 liter Black and gold stuff I use I would imagine?
      I have considered trying an industrial Vinegar, have been interested to see how that would go.

      When you talk about Ranex is that the stuff you put on car windscreens as a water repellent, or is it something else with the same name?

      Rain-X: http://www.supercheapauto.com.au/Pro...y-473mL/225395


      Ranex RustBuster:https://www.bunnings.com.au/bondall-...mover_p1560855


      - - - Updated - - -

      Another option would be something like Chemtech Rust-off. It's stronger than Ranex (30%-60% vs 10-35% phosphoric acid) but doesn't contain Ferrous Sulphate like the Ranex.: https://www.bunnings.com.au/chemtech...mover_p1107356

      Diggers also have an oxalic acid product: https://www.bunnings.com.au/diggers-...eaner_p0960276

      I was wondering how well this stuff worked. I tried vinegar for the first time on some coin doors and nuts bolts and clips and was happy with the out come. You can see the results of vinegar in arcade restoration and projects, Arcade restore basic fun build. I have a video at end of thread. 1.50 seconds into vid for coin doors and 6.25 for nuts and bolts. I used the $1.20 vinegar from Aldi.
      Cheers
