I read this story in Gas Engine Magazine. This man had made some new parts for and old engine and he wanted to rust the parts to look old.

If you cleaned them up real good and sprayed them with some salt water they would rust up pretty quick. As quick as a  71 Ford!

Send the parts to me and I will set them on my workbench at work. Between the Ferric Chloride, Sulfuric Acid and the Sodium Hydroxide, I can have them rusty in 2 to 4 hours!

 

Totally destroyed in 2 days!

Sounds like our lab, we have same issues. Their is one computer near the storage containers looks like it's been sitting in the stuff, it's mostly the HCL and acetic acid fumes in our place.

 

I was also going to suggest spraying with some salt water.
