Hope to see you there!
That word takes me way back to a song verse my
mom would sing from time to time......
"Oh.... your red scarf matches your eyes....
You close the cover before striking....
Your father has the Shipfitter's blues....
and loving you has made me bananas...."
Anyone know who wrote or sung that?.....
Dodge Content: I've seen the results of Eastwood's
Zinc Plating Kit.... real nice finish. For any
exposed bolt heads, etc. in the vehicle's interior,
you could dab a bit of boiled linseed oil on them.
They'll stay "natural" but shiney. Folks who collect
old hand tools use this method.
Sorry Navy guys, Im going back on topic!
Ive used the eastwood zinc plate kit, great results for the money. You really feel good after its all done, seeing the results. Easy to do also. Make sure and get every bit of rust off the part though. When detailing carbs, I used the kit to replate linkage and it looked like new. I like using a cabnet sand blaster that I designate just for polishing and cleaning for small parts. I use glass bead in it. When I was rebuilding my govenor in my Farmall A some of the springs were rusty but still very usable. I sandblasted them with the glass bead, cleaned them up like new inside the spring as well. A wire wheel brush couldnt do that.
