    Mayor I haven't gotten to your bezel yet. Was gone most of a week for the Turkey and when I got back and my syrup tank's floor had sagged out. I went to repair it and tore the liner. Big mess started to ensue, had to scoop out all the precious rust eater, into every container I could muster. I fixed and reinforced the shanty-esc tub, replaced the tarping, and loaded her back up. The roof, doors, and quarters looked real good and were finished along with other bits. Sadly I wasn't set up to power wash and prep that stuff at the time and it all flash rusted bad. So now it's back in for a little longer. I have to take down my hood sides of the garage wall and some other bits. They need to be put in when I get the bulk of what's in there now out.
    Worst of all I need to clean the garage to make room for all the parts when they're done. It's not like I can just snap it all back together on the frame. This is a far cry from the plastic 1:24th glue jobs of my childhood.
    Next up take that damn grill apart for my buddy from Nebraska.

    Nice and used. I'll make my own adjustable mounting solution. You know the Phillips heads make me want to vomit, "good by turkey my attorney will be in touch"

    Nice, had the same thought regarding the screws when I saw the pic. Not up to your high vintage standard.

    Could be worse. Everything in Canada comes with F'ing Robertson screws.
     
  13. Guess I am living in the land of darkness here in Nebraska...WTF is Robertson screws?

    Horrible design for a screw head. I once repaired a wooden boat built with brass Robertson screws. Out of the thousand or so I took out about five didn't strip, they were the ones into rotten wood.

  16. Strange,
    It's dark here in New York also!
    Never heard of Robertson screws!
    If they are female they should be
    Mrs Robinson screws for the old timers!

  17. Well it's super dark here in California so that means west middle and east America has no clue about them screws. We have machine screws or sheet metal screws, then there's drywall screws. Then there's always the kind when you get screwed...

    My first experience with these was being disappointed as a young boy that my dad didn't own a screwdriver that fit them. They were allover the trailer trash residence we resided in when I was a child. I use to want to take everything apart to see how it worked, including our home. Once we finally moved back into a real house made of wood and nails this became more difficult. I moved on to taking apart cars. Look where that got me.

    They were used on Canadian manufactured model T and some other cars. They are stupid. Phillips are far superior.
     
  22. Well I learned something today...
     
  23. Think something like these were in a fairly new 5th Wheel we owned at one time. Even found a multibit screwdriver in the trailer after we bought it that had the square bit.

  24. Unless it's a vintage project, Robertson is my choice. My hatred for slot (flathead) screws is a passion that runs deep.

    Oh they suck that's for sure but when your dead set on a particular look and era... I'm not going to pass off a 40s period build with a zip tie and box store zinc plated lock nuts right where everyone can see a rolling contradiction.

  26. Oh don't get me wrong, I won't be using phillips or robertson screws on either of my builds. But I will be cursing everything under the sun every time I have to turn a screw... :D

    Officially took first parts out of the Molasses today. I really don't have time to be messing with this stuff but I needed to make room in there for some more parts as the weather is getting colder fast. The roof is done but the two sections are on the bottom of the tank so I'll have to get to it next week.
    Doors.

    These were pretty bad on the inside. You can see there is still rust inside the layers of steel at the hinge mounts. I put the other one back in for a few more days. Maybe this one should go again too.

    I'm still happy with the results. Everything is coming out at least 90 somthin% rust free. It's mostly time over labor here. It's kinda a messy deal giving I'm doing this at home in the yard and at winter time now no less. I'm thinking I've spent around $250 on this procedure so far. When the juice gets old it turns black. I spilt a bunch with the leak mishap. There's a large portion of grass I've destroyed. I hope that after the spring rains it will all be well, but it's an ugly sight. Oh and the old stuff stinks God awful, actually the clean parts even stink pretty bad. I guess this is all more of a shop kinda kinda thing not a subdivision one

    Do you need to neutralize these after the bath? With it getting into all the books and crannies it seems if you did you'd need to almost submerge the part to get into all those spots

    I used this stuff Tim.

    You keep it as saturated as possible for 20-30 minutes. On one hand the dry cold keeps it from flash rusting fast. The directions are kinda confusing cause you have to apply it to a dry surface, good luck with that if you don't want it to start rusting. At $30 a gallon I can't afford to submerge these parts even one at a time. I just waited till most of the water ran off than started spraying vigorously. Will see if it worked or not.
