One day later

Ok, so after 24 hours of soaking in white vinegar, it’s time to see what we’ve got. And what we’ve got is almost all the surface rust is gone after a good scrub with a wire brush.

After the vinegar, I washed all of the pieces in water with a little baking soda to try and bring the Ph back to normal. I then rubbed down each piece with WD40 and a paper towel to clean off the last bits and get a thin later of oil on the metal so they don’t immediately rust as things tend to do in this part of the world.
