  1. I want to clean up my `35 wires and I`m thinkin` that dippin` `em will produse better results than having them blasted. Anyone got the formula for this? And how long do I leave`em in ther for? Thanks -Ryan

    here ya go.. molasses
    also go to the search in that website and put in molasses
    quoted from the website..
    A 4:1 ratio of water to molasses. Mix it in fairly warm water.
    Depending on your local temperatures the cleaning takes 7-14 days. Helps to agitate every few days.
    If you can remove all grease and paint off the block it will clean those areas also.

    Yep, it works! This is what I first used on some sheet metal for my Hudson. I am now using the liquid which can be purchased at Nurseries or Feed Stores.

    20:1. 20 parts water with 1 part molasses works well with the thick treacle variety from the local produce store.
