    Yes, this method works real well. I use a few chunks of rebar versus coat hangers as they have more metal to them. Wire together and surround the work piece. If you have a swimming pool you could do a whole car :-)

    Neat idea! Makes me wonder though; imagine a tank big enough to put a whole car in........ Better stop thinking while I'm ahead in life!

    Are my concerns unfounded as this this a normal time frame.

    I used washing soda, not baking soda, (I'm not a chemist, dont' know a difference) but found that overnight would take off almost anything, grease, paint, rust, whatever. I used about a cup of W. Soda for about 4 gallons of water.. I made a loop of coat hanger wire that circled the plastic bucket I used, attached one battery clip the the coat hanger. I ran a piece of brake line across the top of the bucket and hung my work from a wire on this line, with the other clip on the end of the brake line.
