Then, you can apply either a matte clear or RPM to preserve it.


Glass bead the part, treat it in the Eastwood blackening for a second then hand polish the piece with 0000 steel wool. The steel wool will make the piece look new and natural again.

Screamin,

Great process man ! I'll certainly be using that technique for my driver to keep the rust off of those parts !

Thanks for sharing !
