Citric acid can be bought from drugstore (they use it in jelly or such to adjust acidity) but it is very expensive there. Therefore Finnish rodders buy it from some agriculture-store. It is not expensive. Officially it is used as pigs obstruent! I dipped those parts in citric acid for overnight, next day brushed it with wirebrush and flushed it with water. Then again back to citric acid over night and wirebrushed + flushed it next day.
Flushing is important, you'll want to get all acid away, otherwise steel will turn to yellow.
You can't use this method on all parts because of hydrogen embrittlement. So no pedals, frames, brake drums, engine blocks or such to citric acid!!! And yeah, parts should be clean -I've cleaned 'em with fuel- because grease will neutralize acid. Ratio was 3%
Parts must be dried soon as you get them flushed, I quess you guys know why...

Poor Man's Body Repair Part 1
Check out David's D.I.Y. Auto Repair Blog: http://www.diyautorepair.info
I have to do major body work on our 1990 Ford Econoline, I can't afford to have it done at a body shop.
Plus it would cost more than the van is worth, so being a jack-ass of all trades and a master of none, I have to do the job myself.
I have been doing body work for years on all the old cars I have owned in the past.
I use galv. sheet metal and pop rivets and rusty metal primer and Bondo.
This video is MY WAY, the poor man's way of fixing the body rot, it has to be done, the van runs good but the body is going to hell.
Soooo...If any of you that ARE in the body shop business and want to be a critic, please don't, I do not have a garage or the equipment or the MONEY to do it the RIGHT way.
To do it the right way would tie up the van for weeks, we drive the van almost every day.
This video is for you do-it-yourselfer's out there.
