Rust conversion treatments / gel
Citrix acid............heard about the mechershmit removed from the channel and being corrosion treated in cosford, lemon juice !

Try neat Tesco double concentrated lemon juice squash, works a treat on steel, will try and post a pic.........a before and after, as well as today to show any rust bursting thru.......

A toolbox lid was completely immersed in neat Tesco double strength lemon juice squash and left. No real work involved apart from some slight agitation.

 Took about 5 days to removal all rust leaving a mottled rust free surfaced ready to paint, after lid was rinsed in cold water and dried.

Only really suitable for small stuff, unless you have a large workshop area and pockets.

It took the old gold colour hammerite type paint remains off as well.
