Thanks, Jim. I'm going to explore your method for a crossmember. Maybe save a little expense.
I'm going to try Photobucket again... see if I can give a description to each pic.
HEY!! I DID IT!!! Hope the captions come through...
Well, Crap! I'll figure it out some day.
The first pic is just how the frame was looking while sanding. I couldn't believe how easily the paint came off with a 60 grit sanding disc. No sweat... but it was because the paint wasn't stuck. If your paint is stuck, it won't be that easy!
The 2nd pic is just after wiping it down with Denatured Alcohol.
The 3rd and 4th pics are moments after applying Ospho. Remember... have good ventilation or a repsirator. Or you will end up on oxygen some day!
The last pic shows how the Ospho cleaned up the metal. Tomorrow I will wipe it down again and paint it. The areas where the paint remains is "stuck paint". I could not scrape it off easily, so it stays!
Go Fish! <*////><
But the right word at the right time... "Hey, give me a little hug!" That's the difference between lightning and a harmless lightning bug!

Reason: add pic descriptions
