    If you don't care about the risk of using a material that's not designed for the job then go for it but you're probably much better off using products made for rust stabilization. If the job is important and you want it to last don't go cheap.

    Well it does work, but I'd only recommend it on small parts, those you can soak, scrub and rinse. A plastic storage tub can be filled with it for less that a qt of the high end products. Working in older stuff, I've derusted A-frames, headlight buckets etc. But, I don't think I'd try it on a fender, roof, door etc where it is just applied and wiped or rinsed off.

    And you'd be better off using something stronger than the 5% you get in the grocery store. I use the 5% to remove scale from iron, so it will work.
