    Rusty bolts?

    I always see these pictures of all the rusty bolts and stuff from you northern folks. Makes me glad to live in the south where rust is only a fantasy (or nightmare). Thought some of you may find this to be interesting... pretty controlled test on multiple penetrating lubricants to see which is really best. spoiler alert, torch wins lol

    Lol us northern folk thank you for the information heh. I had arrived at the conclusion that not all penetrating oils were created equal. Based on my experience/experimenting I have rested on 'deep creep' from the makers of seafoam and this werid goo called 'honey goo' heh. Curious to see how those would fare in the above video.

    I may yet look to Texas for a clean shell. Haven't seen anything up here close to clean/rust free.
