Guess if you have weeks it would be fine. My luck it would attract bees everywhere I drove:s

No Mustangs at the moment.
Yeah, I wish he gave the concentration of molasses. A big tub of pure molasses would cost a fortune!

Hmmm...maybe instead one should use a molasses product instead, such as rum?

The mix is 9 parts water to1 part molasses before you knock it try it;as far as expense goes whats cheaper?

I know its not for everyone I made up a bin full not expecting much put a few bits in to try it pulled them out 3 days later and washed them and it had brought up shiny metal less damaging than blasting and the solution can be thrown down the drain.

Not sure anyone was knocking it just had more questions about it. My comment was on the time it takes.

I really like The KBS Coating Products. Used Gas tank sealer and 3 step chassis paint so far on The Stang. Good videos on You Tube.

Ever tried white vinegar? It is amazing for cleaning rusty metal!

I have two pedal supports soaking today. I'll have to share some before and after in a few days.
