Default Looking for the information on the restored rusted garand

A few months back there was a thread on the old board about a very rusted (relic type) M1 garand.

The original poster used eletrolisis or something to eliminate the rust and restore the rifle.

I have some items I'd like to experiment with and need the information.

can anybody help?

My father got some old tools at a yard sale and I have some rusty parts to try also. I'm going to do some reading and give it a try.


Thanks!
