    Looks like a good amount of paint was left under the dirt. Good job!

    I use oxalic acid for lightly rusted items and/or items with paint and/or decals.
    It's safe to use on items with paint and decals but removes the (light) rust.
    Can't use it on heavily rusted items since, well, it's too far gone.
    No details found on the inside though.
    People tend to use electrolysis too fast which destroys the paint.

    It's actually light rust

    Please see the restoration forum as we have much info there about this type of thing. Beware this stuff is very dangerous to health.

    Cheers, Ade.
