    The helmet number 3 is the most interesting one for now. It had its original paint removed and repainted with a strange black one very thin, thats why there is bare steel on some spots but hasnt rusted yet since the paint probably had something anti rust in it. You can clearly see the line on bottom right shirt where the edge hasnt been repainted by this paint.

    5. M33 it got a bit better, the rust is heavy and thick and the inside and outside has tar or old grease that has hardened. Some remains of the fregio on the front but nothing spectacular

    Heard about that, and someone said that it discolorates the paint?

    I found this recipe long time and well work.somewhere is use salt and baking soda somewhere ...... but soda and vinegar sometimes is mess and for a longer time can make damage.
    I saw that used a Coke for cleaning rust
