Hello again. What product or system do you recommend to remove rust? look online and there are many products, I do not decide on any. It is for the ring of a Honda SL70 headlight. It has some rust, very little on the outside but something else on the inside, the shell also has some rust, but I am not worried, a good sanding and correct painting and it will be like new. The chrome on the ring has sandpaper marks on it, looks like they tried to remove some rust at the store. I am in the UK, it was hard for me to find this complete headlight, I am very happy that it is an original vintage piece but it needs some work.

By the way, this headlight is for a Honda Z50. It is not the correct part for this model, I know, but when I bought the monkey it came with one like this, but damaged, the headlight of the SL70 fits perfectly, it looks perfect, it is significantly smaller than the original of this model and completely metallic and of much higher quality than the original plastic, Z50a 1978. This will be the only non-original piece of my Monkey, but I do not consider it relevant, it is a personal touch

Evaporust works a treat. Some pop and aluminum foil will clean the chrome up.

Second that, used it on my stator flywheel and was amazed by the results. Have used it a few times now and impressed every time.

Great for gas tanks too! And it doesn’t make you pass out!
