It sounds good to me Tom. Maybe they had a pump circulating the liquid and it helped suck the small bits of crud from near the bottom of the tank and spread them around covering the parts being coated.

I borrowed one of those lobster pot boiling burners and really got the pot hot this time.. Had it boiling and turned it down to just above a boil.. I WAY over did in with the ratio.. Thats 5 gallons of water and the whole container of phosphate.. I got it going by 9am and submerged the parts for hours! I shall report back as to wether or not they stand up over any decent amount of time. confused

Here is a comparison shot between the phosphated hood latch and other smaller pieces in a box that are bare raw steel.. GOOD color this time around

Those body shims are NOT cad plated.. they have been bead blasted and polished in an Eastwood vibrator in case someone thinks this is an incorrect raw metal comparison..

So,this time when the parts were done I pulled them form the pot and they air dried almost instantly.. The moment the water evaporated I sprayed this stuff all over them and hand worked it in with a pair of leather gloves on... I'm hopeful..

Keep in mind that as I am in fact doing this for the C-1 driver car its not because I'm crazy.. Its more a learning curve for when I do my opus....#78

FWIW, when I sent my stuff for the red car to California (Detail Plating), they sent a sheet back with the parts that said to keep them spayed with WD-40 to keep them in good shape and it seems to work. My car has been done since '03 and still looks pretty nice.

I have some NOS pulleys somewhere which have never been sprayed with WD40 and have been quite abused and no signs of rust anywhere. I can post some pics if you wanted to see them...
