    Well, I’m done with Evapo-rust. I soaked another part, my emergency brake pedal assembly, and was rewarded by having it covered again in that disgusting goo. Luckily, I was able to clean it all out before it solidified, after going through a full can of carb cleaner and a can of brake clean. Other parts I had been soaking at the same time in Rustoleum came out looking like brand new and just needing a simple rinse in running water and a coating of WD-40 for rust protection.

    Rustoleum for me, from now on. Another bonus for using it is that it gets it done in 15-30 minutes, instead of overnight, which is probably why it doesn’t grow goo.

      Where can you get the RustOleum? Sounds like I might need some.

        You supposedly can find it at Walmart but mine only have the gel in stock, and I buy it by the gallon so I can soak. I searched online and found Autozone carries it so I get it there. If you go to their website they have a ‘where to find in your area’ button.

            Looks like Autozone for me, too. Not a place I normally go, but will to try this stuff.

              I’m constantly amazed by how well this Rustoleum works, other stuff I’ve tried seems to make every piece a uniform gray color, this stuff seems to restore each piece to it’s original finish. In this photo, notice how the base fixture is the original bare steel while the clip for the cable is it’s original black oxide finish.
