Has anyone else used this? I loved it. I brushed off all loose rust, and applied this and was ready to paint.
I used a similar product appropriately called, "Rust Converter", from theruststore.com. It worked well for me. Here is a description of the ingredients from their web store;

Rust Converter, a water-based primer, contains two active ingredients: Tannic acid and an organic polymer. The first ingredient, tannic acid, reacts with iron oxide (rust) and chemically converts it to iron tannate, a dark-colored stable material. Tannins are a group of water- and alcohol-soluble natural products extracted from fruits, trees and grasses. The second active ingredient, 2-Butoxyethanol, is an organic polymer that provides a protective primer layer. The overall chemical reaction converts rust into a stable, black protective polymeric coating that serves as an excellent primer for both oil and epoxy based paints.

Well, seeing how your powerwasher aint reaaly up to snuff, borrow a big one.

I have a 13 hp belt drive, and with a rotary nozzle at 3,000-3,500 psi, it will take off paint.

Doesn't the GNAP have one or two ?

I don't think the GNAP even has a pressure washer. He must be slipping. I did find a deal on ospho $30 a gallon shipped.

Probably not, but the wire wheel will.

Figured I'd better up date this as the P----ing is finally done. Found ospho at Home Depot for $16 a gallon, wire brushed everything and rolled on the paint. Came out nice and shiny. That will last about a year till it fades out but for a 50/50 job (50yards/50mph) it didn't come out too bad.

Looks very nice Norm. A far cry from what you started with.

Looks good from here too.

Did you modify the rims on the gehl loader in the background for the car tires on it? Or did the tires fit the original rims? Just thinking in case I need new tires for mine.

Those are the tires that came on it. 13" rims, and 13" tires are getting hard to find around here used, in good condition. They are plain old "Summer" tires because they act as torque limiters. Hydro-Mac, that folks that built it for Gehl over powered both the drive and the hydraulics. The machine has the power to self destruct if you aren't careful.
