Lucky Bobs Acid is all I use

too easy and it works ..............just wash your chassis off when your done........ or it will rust by morning  or depending on what time of night you work on your cars ..........let say 8 hours later


There are no ties in drag racing. Thank god!!!

I use "Stay clean" Flux, available online or at the welding supply.  And Radio Snack 60/40 solder.

Stay-Clean flux and solder also available at most Home Depot's as well.
 


To the optimist, the glass is half-full.
To the pessimist, the glass is half-empty.
To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.
