As part of the brake system overhaul, I'm replacing the brake master cylinder with a rebuilt OEM 3/4" unit from my parts stash. The backing plate had a bit of rust, so I used this opportunity to try out Evapo-rust. 12 hours of soaking and not a trace of rust. Pretty sweet. (Can I soak the entire car :D )

That looks great ! Did you by the way tried vinegar already for getting rust away ?

I've only used vinegar on electrical components with surface rust. This rust was a lot more "crusty" so I decided to give this product a shot. I still need to figure out a good short term solution for the rust in other locations. (Like the trunk/rear fender seems) Might try yo clean up as much as I can in those locations and switch to a rust converter product like zero-rust.

Progress is still slow. I finished installing a new brake master cylinder (glad I kept some of my stock parts) and new hard lines to the splitter. Started working on restoring the driver's rear brakes, but was unable to remove the old brake drum. Used lots of rust penetration fluid but unfortunately the threads on the bolt holes used to push the drums off stripped :( Gotta figure out another way of getting them off.
