At first I thought this idea was nonsense however after trying it I must say that is possibly the way of removing it I have found. Unlike the wire brush it doesn't scratch up the case and also removes alot of the other grime with it.
+Rep for that brilliant idea.
The kit: I quickly used this foil paper up by trying to do everything at once. So instead started focusing on individual areas.
The enemy: I decided to focus on these 3 bits as they were easy to get to and as I later discovered the far right patch of rust extended under the plastic.
Before and after: Using a wire brush to get the worst off then finishing up with the foil.
These are the hardest to get at so will require a fair bit of elbow grease.
Originally I thought these were removable, turns out they weren't
so I now how to reattach this one some how. I should of realised when I was using an adjustable wrench to remove it. At the time I thought it was really rusted up.
After 5 minutes of work.
A quick clean up, 5 minutes work has got off a majority of the rust and also the grime around it compared to the top.
I have been having really been having time constraints doing this case so I will try to continue this on the Sunday. However in the mean time I will be at a friends house putting a computer within a mega drive within the weekend, I will try to post that next week.
Also next week I will have my normal camera back so good quality images from now on.
