Is it available in hardware stores? Is it something thick that you can brush on?

There are a lot of cheap plastic containers in the stores that are perfect size for dipping frames. I think are wrapping paper storage containers. There were a ton of them in Walmart yesterday marked down.

I got what is better know as wood bleach it is found in some hardware stores I went to about 6 before I found it and bought up all I could get my hands on . I bought it about a month ago and they still dont have anymore. lIt does not effect the decals at all. its not real harsh on your skin either . I would still wear at least Dish wash yellow golves to be safe and a pair of safety glasses. it has no odor . The bars sat in it for about 14 hrs then wiped off clean except where there was already pitting thats permenant. Its in a powder form I mixed it in a 40 Gal trash can with lid. As far as making a paste Im sure it possible . I also put marvel mystery oil in the bars when they were finished to prevent any further rust inside them .

they look good but with a polishing wheel you can blend in the faded areas that look tarnished ,,its a shame it wont put the chrome back on !!!!ha ha )) but it does work well ,,,,it works well on spokes and steel rims,,I just did a sugino crank,gt pro bars ,I did two sets of pro class rims ,,I have been using it alot ,,my beer keg bucket looks like antifreeze but I have kept my mix for 3 weeks now and just threw in some rusty sockets from my tool chest
