    Kevan, good job! It's looking great.

    I was intrigued by the rust neutralizer 'cause I think I need about a five-gallon pail for the inside of my shoebox.

    What is it exactly?

    Thanks!

    Keep up the good work.

    Just some cheap crap I bought from the hardware store called IronClad. Most hardware stores will sell some sort of rust converter or rust inhibitor.
