Eastwood Rust Dissolver Gallon is rated 3.1429 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing stuff I'm in the midst of restoring a 90 Miata up here in Rustland and was looking for a solution for the many anodized bolts and small brackets/pieces that need to be taken care of. I purchased 2 gallons of this and filled a plastic container I picked up with a gasketed lid (the stuff will evaporate and turn into jelly if you leave it open too long). .I also have an old stainless fry-o-lator basket I got somewhere that works great for bolts/nuts. The secret is to degrease parts before dipping and leaving enough time for really rusted parts to be worked on by the solution. I just did some wheel hubs I left for a week. The picture of the hood latch I've attached was 24 hours. When I pull the items out I do the following; wire brush or toothbrush to work off the remaining rust remnants, then into a parts washer for some more brushing/rinsing, then air dry, then I pretty quickly hit them with Eastwood's After-Blast (or some vinegar) to prevent flash rust. I know it seems expensive but if you start purchasing lots of oem bolts - especially large, long bolts/nut used in suspensions, this pays for itself quickly with the old pieces you can save.. The picture is the hood latch before & after. I washed it for an hour, then into the Rust Dissolver for 24 hours, then back into the washer, then dried. I have tried just about every other solution out there and this stuff is the best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Stuff That Worked Well for Me!!! I just finished using this as a pre-treatment to some items I needed to electroplate. Overall, I am very pleased with how well this product removed any remnants of rust that were left over after lightly hitting them with a wire brush earlier. It also seemed to have removed any of the remaining coating from the clips, so that was an added bonus for me. Overall, it should more than pay for itself over the next couple years (remember, it's reusable) so I would definitely recommend this to anyone who's planning on doing some electroplating or powder-coating at home. I also thought I should add that I had no problem whatsoever with it eating away at the metal as another customer had stated. The items I had soaking in this solution were much thinner than a nut, yet none of their rigidity or strength was compromised at all (fuel injector clips). Good stuff yet again, Eastwood!! Thanks for these great products at competitive prices!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not what I expected I have a rust covered roof. The phot makes it look like the chemical will make the rust disappear and fresh metal will appear. This was not the case for me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not sure about this stuff I've used a few gallons of this stuff. No matter how I rinse or clean the part after removing it from the chemical, it flash rusts. In just a few minutes. I left a few bolts and nuts in the chemical for quite a while and it ate them to the point that I cannot use them anymore. The nut actually turned into a hollow shell that I can break apart with my hand. I have some body mount shells that I am doing now and it looks like it is eating them apart too. Its not that the rust is ate away and I am seeing the damage from the rust. This is new damage that wasn't present. This stuff will eat the finish off of anything, including tools. I used a pair of channel locks to remove some parts from the chemical and it ate the finish of the channel locks and they have completely rusted away. I can't open them anymore. A brand new pair. I was using them because the chemical will dry out and make my hands itch. I tested a zinc plated bolt just a few minutes ago. It ate the zinc off of the bolt instantly. This stuff eats the rust off and works great just make sure you only put parts in this stuff for a short period of time (just enough to remove the rust) and be sure to get some paint on the parts before they flash rust.
