Hello Hambers, I have my 54 chevy 3100 and she has some killer patina. I got a new grill for her off craigslist and I want to do the clr bath with the srubby pad to reveal more patina under the surface rust. Does anyone have any experience doing this? What ratio did you run the clr with water? I have seen 40 to 1. And after I do the clr bath (or any other method to this because I have seen goof off used as well) what can I do to preserve it besides clear coat? I am in college and on a budget so what do you all think about eastwood patina preserver? I have heard good things but I would like to see some personal experiences from the best on here. Thanks for reading! and check out the pic of one of my trucks and tell me what you think, here it is.
