I just picked my tank up from Scott and the good people at Metal Rescue, and I have to say the results are nothing less than astonishing. I would have had it back last week but I somehow seemed to leave my petcocks on the work bench. As a matter of fact, Scott told me, out of all the tanks that showed up from his craigslist ad, only Sgt. Carters tank showed with the petcock. This is important, because Metal Rescue needs to be in contact with all the rusty surfaces to work. You can soak most parts on it, but for gas tanks, they need to be filled with the solution so the petcock comes in pretty handy..
As I said before I have tried all manner of tank cleaning and coating solutions, and I have never seen a product that works nearly as well as Metal Rescue. I was a bit sceptical, but figured I would give it a shot anyway. It worked as well, or as I think, better than advertised. Here are a couple shots of the after, they are a bit better than the before shots, but you'll get the point.
The ironic part is, it cost me more in gas driving back in forth to the Metal Rescue Headquarters in Howell than it would to buy a gallon from their website. How much does this magical rust removing product cost you may well be asking yourself now. I can tell you that a gallon is only twenty five US dollars and a five gallon bucket is only ninety bucks, so you get a much better value with the five gallon. Scott had no idea I had a blog when I answered his craigslist ad. And I received no compensation for this review, this is just the testimony of one satisfied test subject. I was just one of many who answered the ad asking for donor tanks for testing. And as you may have surmised by now, I am very satisfied with the results and can whole heartily recommended this product as one you can feel safe using on your rusty tank. One word of caution, although Metal Rescue is completely safe on any surface except rust, if your tank is excessively rusty, it may leak after using this product. This is due to the fact that the tank is gone round the bend, not from the product being caustic. So what the hell are you waiting for, whip out those credit cards, get yourselves some Metal Rescue and stop rust in it's tracks.
Till Next Time............
