Bought some Evapo Rust after a recommendation from Big Block forum member.
This recommendation was based around how evaporust was a simple way of removing rust and non abrasive on the components concerned.

In my experience evaporust is a superb product and well worth purchasing as it's very easy to use use and gives great results.

Toe clip strap buckles which were very rusty (no before snap unfortunately) and soaked in evaporust.

Evaporust: I am pleased to see you getting the results. So good to see a product that works so well.
Mechanical rust removal on that Simplex plate would likely have seen the remaining text abraded.

Just make sure you use a wax or the oily rag to provide a thin film. The choice will depend on the part.

Changing the bar tape to cotton.
Original bar ends are in great shape for the age of them.

Enjoying these pictures and updates.

Where did you get the evaporust? Presumably online somewhere as it's an American product from what I understand, just wondered if you got a good price.
