Looks like it wasn't a very rusty piece to begin with, did you remove original paint just to get to the decal remnants?
No I didn't touch it I only put it in the acid and it removed most of the rust that was covering the paint
Make sure you neutralised the acid goon - an alkaline wash in bi-carb soda or clear water will do.
NOW you have cleaner metal, it will corrode - you need to keep it in a box / bag / protected display case or seal it with wax or MATT clear lacquer or it will deteriorate again.
Im going to put some MATT clear lacquer on it. Thanks
Try and heat it up in the oven to 50-60 C for an hours or two. Just to get rid of the moist.
not a bad recovery, any before pics?
Looks Great Goon, beautiful back drop too if i may say so, I like it a lot and as Krad said i'd like to see some "before" pics.
