- removing rust from chrome bolts
Coca cola and tin (aluminium) foil.
Ali is softer than chrome so it doesn't scratch. Ali also attract the ions from the iron oxide due to differences in charge, apparently,and the sugar and citric acid in the coke work as a fine, soft abrasive and acid.
Its a long job though. Alternatively, soak rusty things in oxalic acid is what all the old school bmx restorers recommend.
Autosol is great for some polishing, but some think it's too harsh on chrome, better for aluminium. People tend for polishing to recommend soemthingcalled "peek", available on the interweb.Posted 7 years ago
