All the pros I talked to (many) direct me to a Sherwin Williams product that
phosphates and cleans at the same time. Its in a gallon jug and I spray it
on, wipe it off. I cant remember the part number as I am at home right now,
but it does a great job. You have to completely wipe it off and this takes
time and care to get in all the crevices. Key thing is to wear surgical
gloves while handling the parts and then use a good etching primer
afterwards. I am told that I can now relax completely and get to the repairs
on the parts whenever I have time since the metal is now fully protected
against the elements. Aside from that, I have all parts in a very climate
controlled building where its a constant 76 degrees with low humidity. I'm
happy. :) But then again I am no professional. I am very new to all this. I
do pride myself however on checking with people who DO know before I take
any serious plunges.
