Metal Rescue - A must for any person restoring an old bike

I'll admit it, I'm a total garage nerd, and a sucker for nifty products and tools that can enhance my "Quality Garage Time". This is definitely one of those products. If you mess around with old bikes you have no doubt spent time getting the rust off of old parts with a combination of WD-40, a wire brush, and finger tip skin. Those days are over.
Metal Rescue is an environmentally safe product that literally dissolves the rust away. You just drop in the rusted part, let it soak for a period of time (the worse the rust, the longer you soak it), and presto, the rust is gone.

Another benefit is that it doesn't remove any of the metal. I needed to get the rust off of my old Triumph rotors and didn't want to damage the finish. As you can see in these before and after photos, Metal Rescue just made all the rust go away.

If you have a handlful of old rusted nuts and bolts, just let them soak over night. The worst you will have to do is hit them with a still brush to knock off the loose stuff. It's bio-degradable, non-toxic, and non-flammable, plus, you can reuse it.  I just filtered out what I used and poured it back into the container. I think that I have seen competitors come out with a similar product (WD-40 has one), but Metal Rescue is the only one I can vouch for at this point. I bought mine through Summit Racing supply.
