Hi David,
Omaka is definitely worth a look. I cannot compare molasses with white vinegar, which I have never used. I know molasses works extremely well (at 6:1 mix) as long as you're not in a hurry, as it is usually 10 to 14 days before the rust disappears. I have recently heard that molasses is not good on hardened steel, like gear cogs, crankshafts etc as it causes pitting. But it is excellent on panel steel, chassis, brackets etc.

The 100th anniversary of Armistice Day was marked today by a big military vehicle display at Karapiro, near Cambridge NZ. Among the many vintage military vehicles were four LRDG replica Chev 1533X2 30cwt trucks and we took the opportunity of lining them up for a group photo-shoot. From left is "Louise", then "Tainui", then T9 "Te Aroha III" (now road-legal!!!) and nearest the camera is Ian's truck T10, with its gas-powered Breda gun.

Beauty !! I don't know if there are any of these in Canada! (most people think it was the Americans who fought Rommel..thanks to the "Rat Patrol" tv show)
