Used a bit of tubing and a rock to keep the iron from making contact with the bottom of the tank.

Right?! Left the tank hooked up for about 48 hours then sloshed the acid around inside for about 30 min. There is still some rust on the top of the tank but as you can see the bottom looks brand new! We should have it finished this weekend.

I'd heard of using electrolysis for rust removal but had never seen the results. That's outstanding, particularly considering how cheap it is to do.

I may have to find a bus sized pool so I can de-rust my undercarriage.

That is exactly what Jack (aka; Ol' Trunt) did for many of the parts on his 1935 Chevy. He used a large, plastic Kiddy Pool as I recall and had excellent results.
