Ok, so here's a question for you guys. I took both lock mechanisms out and soaked them in CLR. They were originally so corroded and covered in rust they would even function. After soaking them for two days they're like new. But my problem is, if I leave them out of the CLR for a few hours they're covered in rust again.
What can I soak these in to keep them looking new still. Is that even possible, meaning once oxidized, always oxidized?
