The flyboys ? --yes take it from me --they know how to deal
with corrosion and RUST.
Only the flyboys ? ---one more the Sailors like Gary Bangs.
But back to the flyboys US NAVY in the Pacific ----they are the tops.
Give me a brand new Rabbit and I guarantee it will NEVER rust. I am using
US NAVY procedures.
And Mark Shepherd was close ----kerosene and used engine oil ? very close
but here is one better. Use used hydraulic oil the heavy stuff and no kerosene.
Some hydraulic oils have a RUST inhibitor in the formulation. I use ESSO NUTO --H 68
but use NUTO H 150 if you can get it.
I spray BUNNY BONDO regularly ---and it works. Nuto is easy on rubber and so on-----
If sand and salt packs in a corner ? when it is dry ---like in the summer ? spray
spray and spray to soak it with oil ----when soaked with oil it will not take on water later on.
Here are a few of the US NAVY tricks.-----lots of Zinc Chromate primer ---lots of Linseed oil
"Linoil" lots of Cosmoline. lots of Marine grade Never sneeze. Lots of Beeswax.
Galvanize anything that is standing still. ------ Remember if it moves ? Salute it, if not
moving PAINT it.
Plating with Cadmium was done a lot ---- and Red Lead paint ? great stuff BUT the
winner is ---of all time ? ---Right Black Tar. Penny for Penny Dollar for Dollar
NOTHING compares to TAR. ---around salt water.
PS : I am getting a little rusty.
