Re: How to use Naval Jelly??
I've experienced first hand and been told by experts that steel wool is a huge NO NO.
It sets off a chemical reaction which can never be undone, it will cause far more rust down the road than you can imagine.
Sorry, wish I could say something nice about it.
RE: Black pits
Two kinds of Naval jelly, one turns rust black, the other white. The directions I've read say to leave the stubborn rust, just knock off the lose stuff. The chemical reaction needs rust, not bare fresh metal to react with.
One large hole I did never rusted again over four years ago. I was able to get behind it, which helped. The whole area turned black, and I spray painted it black (black car).
