After 94 hour’s in citric acid bath

The strengthened consoles looks pretty nice and good enough to painting. The results might be better when using warm liquid.

With wire brush all the loose rust was easy to wash out with clean water. Also the crater bottoms were clean of rust.

 To prevent corrosion in the future, I use Zink-painting. Würth-Zinkpaint was so thick viscous that it was necessary to dilute it with thinner and that way make sure that paint reach also crater bottoms. By the way; it is amazing how quickly clean sheet metal take new rust surface, so you must paint parts immediately after took away from acid bath!
