I ran across a new product on the internet called "DRX The Ultimate Cleaner." Their video show it making rust completely disappear and you wash it away with water. Has anyone used this? What did you think of it?
I saw a vid on youtube on this item. I've stripped the paint off my 21 touring mechanically and now looking to clean surface rust. Looks easy, but I have no experience using the product. Finding somewhere to purchase is some what vague.
You can order it directly from their website. It doesn't have info about stores that carry it.
I use Ospho, You just spray or wipe it on rust and it stops it dead. It will turn the rust black but as far as removing it I'm not sure. I just use a old left over spray bottle and apply the stuff and spread it with an old paint brush. A lot of body shops use it before painting. I got mine off Amazon. I'v used it on my 40 Chev pick up truck and I like it.
I have wasted half a day just watching YouTube videos about all the different ways to remove rust. I feel like I know less than I did when I started. I liked the videos for the "DRX Cleaner" because it seems to work well and is easy to use. The downside is it is rather expensive.
Here is one video where a guy did scientific testing by comparing several different products.
One thing that bothers me is in all the automotive videos, they are working on something that only has a little surface rust. I would like to see how these products work on very rusty, pitted, Model T sheet metal. And I still don't have a clue what is best.
I am mainly interested in removing rust from fenders and large body panels. Nothing else seems to work the way the DRX Cleaner does. Another new product I noticed is Evapo Rust Gel. Has anyone used that?
Rick, We have a 55gal. drum of evapo rust here at work. I have had real rusty parts (and I do mean REAL RUSTY) here and just hung it off a 4x4 across the top of the drum and into the evaporust and in a few hours pull it out and it is clean. After a lot of use it gets dirty so I pump it out and through a cloth to strain it and then back in the drum... I think it works great... but I have never used the GEL.
