This weekend I have been playing with a couple of ways to remove rust from the truck. I had some naval jelly so I smeared that around on the hood. It did a pretty nice job on worst rust. I also played with a wire brush and some steel wool.
All in all, good results. The hood looks 10 x's better.
I am thinking that I might just work one body panel at a time, trying to get the rust knocked down and then I can prime and paint these areas afterwards. It might make the truck look like a patchwork quilt for a while, though. Next, I want to tackle the cab roof. I think I'll save the bed for last.
I'll post some pictures Monday.
