I need to thank Chick for originally turning me on to Evaporust. It really works great even on slightly rusted parts. The paint stripes were gone after taking it out of the solution before I hit it with scotch-brite. George.

Evaporust isn't supposed to removed paint, so apparently there wasn't much there that wasn't 'integrated' with the rust/dirt... :)  I don't think GM expected anything to be there after 44 yrs anyway.. :)

If you leave a part in the solution for a minimal length of time it won't remove the paint.  If you leave a part in the solution for two days, as mentioned about the driveshaft,the paint will become very soft and easily removed by wiping or brushing.

Guess it depends Jerry as I had soaked mine for two days but this is what I found after the first day of soaking. Guess some had seen what I used a couple years ago concerning the 4" PVC capped tube with two gallon of evaporust.
As anyone can imagine I was quite happy with what I found and it was not noticed before the cleaning. I should add I had the drive-shaft then completed by Quanta to remove the pits that were in the tube near the rear section and then duplicated the paint found on the yokes and drive-shaft.





the PCV 4" tube I made up and the first drive-shaft which was out of a 69 Camaro 307/automatic.


P.S. Thanks George.......
