Eastwood Gel Rust Dissolver Gallon is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 54.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I had a rusted trunk pan so I decided to purchase the gel instead of the liquid because of some areas where I would have to apply it vertically. I coated the pan and covered in plastic and left it overnight. After scraping and rinsing I was surprised to see how well it had worked. I applied a second coat this time I agitated the rusty areas with a wire brush while the gel was still on there, put some more gel after agitating it and let it sit for 3 hours. This gave me the best result, if you want quicker results than the suggested 8 hours try using this method.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It really disolves rust! I tired the rust resolver gel and it really does work. I was impressed with this product. Just apply it and let ist set for a few hours. It works while you are doing other things. Come back, rinse, scrape, reapply, and walk away. Once the rust is disolved you do need to clean, prep and paint the area quickly or everything will just turn rusty orange again. On heavier crusty rust I applied it multiple times, rinsed and scraped between apllications for best results. It did seem to weaken the old factory black engine compartment paint which started coming off when I hosed it down. On a surface rust spot on the body I applied it just two times. I was careful with it and it didn't affect the paint on the body.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I have A door off my 49 ford pickup I could not sand or grind the rust or oxidization off. I got this product put on the first coat and was amazed that most of the oxidization and rust was gone. The next coat took the rest off. I Highly recommend this product for badly rusted parts.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Submerged OK... / Coated & Wrapped Not Okay! Coated a body panel with light to moderate rust areas. Wrapped panel with plastic wrap as suggested. 24 hrs later some rust was removed. Areas with light rust seemed to need more applications. Submerged nuts, bolts and a spring, in a container. The product worked much better.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Corrosive. This is the first product from eastwood I do not like. I find it more corrosive than the liquid. The vapor from product caused rust on everything within 5 feet of it. It does remove rust but go for the liquid!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Handy stuff. I have used this product for items large and small, and found it to be very effective. I also wish the gel were thicker. I have found that after a period of time it turns to a liquid, so if you need that feature, use it while it is fresh.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst product Used as directions stated, as soon as the water touched it the rust came back worse than when we started. Called the tech line and was told NOT to use water as directed, but to use acetone. Had to order a different product and start over.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A GREAT SOLUTION TO RUST PROBLEMS i removed my truck bed on my 2008 super duty .the truck frame needed to be painted , and it had too many places i could not get a grinder with a wire brush into . so i decided to try the gel rust remover . i first used a wire brush and brushed the frame where i could get to it . then i applied the gel with a 2" paint brush . left it sit for more than 8 hrs . then in the morning after i came from the coffee shop i moved the truck outside and hosed the frame off real well . backed the truck into the garage again , turned the heat back on all day and night so it dried real well . the frame was totally derusted , like new .i then applied a coat of primer for rusty metal by rustoleum , left that dry over night , then applied a coat of gloss black rustoleum finish paint . looks like a new frame now . for extremely rusted areas i would recomend more coats of rust remover . i still have to do my drive shaft , and my front axel yet . my drive shaft is really rusted alot . i did apply one coat to it , and it is still rusted . so it will need more work yet . i did pour some rust gel in a can , throw some very rusted bolts from the truck bed fender braces in the can , left them sit in the can over night . the next morning i rinsed them off . they came out in like new condition , ready for paint . so i am well pleased with the gel rust remover .....ed

About Eastwood Gel Rust Dissolver Gallon

Eastwood's Gel Rust Dissolver harnesses the powerful rust-dissolving properties of our popular liquid rust dissolver and put them into a clinging gel. This tacky gel adheres to large surfaces and dissolves rust without having to submerse the metal in a tub or bucket. Ideal for roofs, deck lids, hoods, frame rails and more. Eastwood's Gel Rust Dissolver is easy to use: simply wire-brush off the loose rust and scale, and then apply the gel with a brush; it penetrates deep into the metal, dissolving the rust overnight. (Can also be used with submersion if desired.) If you're going to top-coat the surface, we recommend first using our 10041Z PRE Painting Prep to remove any residual dissolver.

Gentle enough for use on engine parts; harmless to copper, brass, aluminum, solder, lead, plastic, rubber, wood and vinyl.
