Will address paint  first and then look into rust remover. Might have to try brushing on and keeping wet that way instead of dipping.
Then after cleanup question is how to get cad look back?

if you want to keep a part 'wet' with evapo-rust, without soaking it, you might try using a paper towel, wetting it with evaporust, and laying on the rusty areas.. spray that with evaporust to make it *very wet*, and then putting the part wet paper towel and all ..  into a plastic baggie and sealing it up - that will help minimize evaporation.  Evaporust works best if you can keep it warm... so keep the bagged up part in a warm area.  To get back the 'cad' look, it would be best to have it cad plated, although if you can't/won't do that, then there are 'paints' available to simulate the cad look.

Darrell:

I think that is the process (as described by JohnZ) for 'Fisher body', all of which happened prior to the body moving to the Assembly Plant where the front clip parts are painted and installed, which I believe included the cowl panel (and I'm assuming the under cowl (black out or white out) for stripe cars)?   I'm going to go read that again for his description for how the under cowl white-out/black-out was painted, but I'm pretty certain that would have been done at 'assembly', which occurs AFTER the Fisher firewall blackout.

Evaporust (and Metal Rescue and other similar products) do not harm paint, glass, rubber, etc.  It only attacks the rust (iron oxide)...

I'd suggest sticking with someone you know produces good results.  If you've seen/approve of the work that 'John Stuart' does, then it should be fine.  I went with Steve Grigori after seeing many recommend him, I talked to him on the phone, and his price was good.   I did clean and bead blast some old black paint off mine before sending it to him..   When he received it, he called me back and we discussed whether I wanted it 'polished' or not; he told me it would be better, but seeing where the small pits were on mine (not obvious I thought), I didn't elect the extra polishing.   I think he polishes all to an extent, but for deep pits he has some extra processing he can do at extra cost as I recall.   I'm perfectly happy with mine as received.  It's installed, although I haven't yet driven the car since... attached are 'before' and 'after' photos...   My recommendation for booster rebuilding:   Brake Boosters / Steve Grigori...   Smiley

I wasn't there so I don't really *know*, but thinking about what would be *easier/less time consuming* for the factory, I'd think all cars would get the blackout (*after paint*), and after that only the cars with stripes got the 'stripe paint' under the cowl...   but that's a good question for someone who was 'there'....  JohnZ?

Apparently, the owner was *paid something* which she agreed to (bank payoff + ??), so at that point in time, the *insurance company* would OWN the car.   If it had been a 'wrecked/damaged/recovered' car, the insurance company would then have ran it thru an insurance sale (auction) and sold it to whomever paid the most...

but.. since the car not recovered quickly, apparently the insurance company either 1) didn't request the title from the bank, or 2) requested it, got it, and lost it in the intervening 42 yrs!.   Can you imagine trying to locate the title?  or getting a 'replacement title' from the state 42 yrs later?  I would imagine this to be about the same as requesting sales paperwork from the dealership that sold your Camaro 42 yrs ago!

I worked for 2 or 3 large companies in my career.  It's infathomable to me, to imagine them maintain/keeping any piece of paper for 42 years and being able to find it even if they did keep it!...   I always had problems just finding a 'Final Report' submitted on contract DAxxxxxxxx, after a couple of years, and that even where the Final Report was the 'deliverable' or sold item, for a multi million $$ contract!

have you tried a 'liquid wrench' type product?  ..  and maybe a little air pressure? *G*..  be careful where you point that thing if you use too much air pressure.. Smiley

Never seen an axle stamping like that one.

Nor have I, the characters seem to be stamped individually,  but I don't claim to be an 'axle stamping' expert either...   

There's so much 'restamping' going on, I suppose some might also resort to restamping rear ends as well...?

I'm thinking someone will go for it. Roll Eyes

Probably, if someone thinks they've 'got to have them', and if the items are real.... it's probably not a bad deal.
