Pink Goo Rust Remover

Ok all you Old guys I need you to help me remember the name of a very old product. I got a friend who has some surface rust in odd places,,,foot peg mounts,chrome belt guard,,etc,,,he cannot afford new stuff right now. OK OK there was once a product in a small 6 oz bottle. It was pink and thick like PVC glue,the lid had an applicator stick. Looked like peptobismol,,,you slopped it on ,,waited a few minutes i think,,hosed or wiped it off,,Rust was GONE,,,If the chrome was deeply pitted It would get 90% of the rust outta the deep spots. I used it in a bicycle shop in the early 70's,,,worked great! Ok Ok now you know Im old and forgetful,,,anyone remember this product!!!!!:mwink

Loctite sells it under that label still. Might take a look around several more rust removal products on the market now that might work better than there was "back in the day"

If it's valuable, then leave that to a professional that won't ruin the sword by doing something wrong.........I ruined a brass lamp once.

Word, rule of thumb with collectors. You totally crap the value if you do any "restoration" They'd rather have it look like a POS

When removing surface rust on chrome IMO without a doubt best thing to use is 0000 steel wool

Yeah it was good for taking off deep rust on bycycle rims,,,pedals,,etc BUT you had to paint or fill in the pits,,,DEFINATLY NOT for a collectors sword.
