How To - Restore Original Hardware
Restoring bolts, nuts, and tin is something you can do yourself
Although great aftermarket hardware kits are available for those with vintage and Fox-body Mustangs, sometimes we just want to keep our original hardware. So what can you do with rusty or painted over hardware? The Northwest Pony Shoppe in Snohomish, Washington, turned us on to this method of hardware restoration and you can do it in your home garage. All you need is a hotplate, Eastwood’s After Blast Metal Prep (phosphoric acid), and WD-40 in a gallon can.
