I think I'd be tempted to try electrolysis. It won't hurt the galvanized surface (unless the rust is underneath the plating), but it will remove the rust. Works well on thin parts, too. Plenty of info on this process on line.

Chemical rust removal would probably work as well - I'm just not sure about what the reaction of zinc/galvanized surfaces would be.

Marry it with this one in the local CL for $20K firm, and you might have the start of a recognizeable car - hilarious.

I don't recall seeing it, but it is local. Fact, it's been on there for some time (wonder why ?).



Should I know this car?  For some reason it looks familiar..??..

Mine did the same thing. Local cops used to hassle me about it, so I looped a piece of wire over the column to hold the lever in the right position. Thought it looked cool anyway -
154  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: 69 tilt column research looking for original info on: March 20, 2014, 09:38:04 PM
As I stated earlier,a little stupidity will go a long way. I am now afraid to go look at the supposedly "original" tilt wheel I bought and installed in the early 80s. I will blame this on Al Gore for not " inventing "the Internet earlier. Yes that's it,that's why I screwed up an original 1969 Lemans Blue X-55 SS 350 by turning it into a White Z 28/RS. There was no Internet ! Now you guys make me feel like a real idiot. Thanks to this site and all you guys for putting me on the right path to a correct restoration of my Camaro! Good luck to all on your projects!
I don't care what you say, I still like you and your car...just don't mention that A*****e, Al Gore on the site again.lol.

Ya'll stop dissing my neighbor (he grew up in the county next to mine). The only thing he's guilty of (lately) is causing global warming. Hot this winter, wasn't it ?

Gas line ? Should be 3/8 single. Speedo clip on firewall ? Muncie location. Bulkhead crayon marks behind rear seat ? X3 might be there. Disc brake backing plate tags ? Long shot, but not always messed with.

Brake line under drivers door - one piece or residual valve (not always an indicator, but my X77 is a one piece, 01C January car).

4 leafs helps, but with no paperwork it still a guess. Intact TT is good. Post pics !

I've got a set of NOS outers if you need some detailed pics. Outer fuzzies for '68 upper door molds if you need a look at those, too.

Steve

Send them to me and i'll lay them side by side with the PUI's and take some good photos..       Smiley

I may wear overalls occasionally, and go barefoot, but I didn't fall off the turnip wagon yesterday - I do have some Mushrat parts I could send instead -

HuhHuh ..  Smiley     Would that be an FMC product?Huh 

FoMoCo, originators of the Rustang. Actually, I don't mind the early ones, I just grew up not being able to pronounce car companies that started with "F", even with four letters -

Somebody's going to get a decent project car - not too bad. Shame it's not a numbers car - there's a lot there to work with.

Love that Trim Type: "Yanko". Truly describes what the seller is attempting to do with your wallet -

Not only is the seller firm on $20K, but what you see is all that goes with the car - nothing. I'd like to meet this guy, just to see if he is an off-world alien.

I'd stick with chemical cleaning. Carb cleaner and brake cleaner both work acceptably: I used a combination of brake cleaner (dip bucket) and Comet Cleanser on my valve covers/intake during a rebuild in '75 - came out pretty close to the original appearance IMO. Glass beading always leaves a tell tale look to it -

Your speaker holes are gigantic.

 lol.. I know thats what happens when 16 year old kid puts new speakers in. There are to many things to count that I've done to this poor car over the years I wish I could take back. Sad

I sure know where your coming from. I got my car in 76 and was 19 at the time. I'm still kicking myself in the butt for some of the things I did. At one point I was going to install a T-Top. Boy I'm glad that never happened.

Precisely what I envisoned in '78. I was selling Porta Band Saws to the custom shops around here that were installing Hurst T-Tops, and it got pretty close to happening. Nearly to the custom stage, I thought about it long enough to recognize originality was probably better. Reading Super Chevy and attending Super Chevy shows starting in the mid-80's cinched the deal. Started spending on NOS parts in 1980 instead of aftermarket -

Tach looks good - wonder if the 12 bolt is still under it ?

Makes my barn car look show worthy -
