    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.

    Try and heat it up in the oven to 50-60 C for an hours or two. Just to get rid of the moist.
