Frame Rust

What do you all use to clean your frames up? I have some rust starting on mine and can't stand it. Also can you do the same to the leaf springs they are rusting as well? Thanks

Re: Frame Rust

I bought one of these from harbor freight.


Worked great cleaning up my new frame, all I did was use some black spray paint after I got it all clean.

Re: Frame Rust

I used a wire brush the first time I did it. Worked ok and I used the rustolem primer then the armor. I didn't know if spray paint or something else would look better.

I was going to say he obviously was never in the Navy!

Another nonaligned spokesperson.

Good stuff, trucks bring it!

I don't care if my thread goes off topic, it's all BS anyway!!!
