How do I get r?ust off the floor of the bus?

Hmm..... what's the right tool? Jitterbug? Pad sander? Grinder? Steel wirebrush?

I know! Sharks! With frickin' laser beams tied to them!



Have you ever seen one of these before? I don't think I even want to know what one costs. A kilowatt laser!

If you buy it, you could charge people to remove rust on their buses and do tattoo removal on the side.

I would think a wirebrush followed up with Ospho would be the best way, depending upon the amount of rust you have?

That's how I would do it. Scrape any loose rust and pour on the rust reformer overnight then prime and paint.

Ospho is a well known brand of rust reformer but anywhere that sells paint should be able to sell you their house brand. Ask for phosphoric acid which is what converts the rust into iron phosphate which is a very good base for paint.

Ooh! Ouch! Do they really use lasers for that? That would hurt! (What do I know? I don't have any tattoos.)

I started this thread just to show a cool new tool I ran across. You're welcome to discuss it all you want, but I'm not really looking for advice.

I never have used this stuff. Will it take care any rust that is/might be left in any pitting? When you poor it out does it need spread around? Again never used the stuff.
Thanks
