I have been putting a few of Nigel's Holder parts through my E-tank, to show Nigel how well they can work..
The first batch didn't come out too well, but after a good clean of the anodes and swapping the power supply from a battery charger to a CB radio power pack great things have been happening.. Or should that be bubbling LOL

One Holder wheel arch..




In the E-tank it goes..




After half hour.




24 hours later...




And after two days stewing in the tank it looked like this when I pulled it out!




The paint just falls off under finger pressure!




And after 2 minutes of scrubbing with a wire brush and some clean water, the Holders wheel arch looked like this.. 98% paint free and all the rust killed off and turned into black stuff..






Once my CB power pack has had a little time to cool down over night, the next arch can go in tomorrow Thumbs%20Up
