Phosphoric Acid - Where Have You Been?!
#11
Just be sure to look at compatibility with primer and topcoats when using phosphorous based rest remover/preventer products.

I agree, On body panels I use it, wipe it down with damp rags, let dry then sand it thoroughly with 180,then clean it and follow up with a hinkle wipe or axalta ps 4000 wipe, I like Axalta 2580cr zinc chromate epoxy. not an inexpensive product but worth the peice of mind. I wouldn't worry about primering over the Kleen strip on other things like misc parts, trailer hitch etc.

I have used on rusted engine block that I could not get the pistons out. Let it set and knocked the piston out next day. Do be safe when using and wear goggles to keep out of eyes. That is also one of the acids in molasses that makes it work just lots slower.
I see you cleaned the hood latch and parking brake. You should get the Iron phosphate chemicals and treat them like Ford did. They used that on any parts that they did not want to stick because of paint. Hood hinges, upper shock caps, gas pedal, emergency brake, hood latch. Yes you can paint but there was a reason Ford did not paint them. 
When we made beer kegs they go through an acid bath to remove any traces of iron from the tooling process and clean the surface of the steel. We had people on that line that had nose bleeds all the time the fumes ate up the inside of their nose. Some of the customers also required a citrus wash after the acid to remove any traces of the acid with another acid, lol. Another reason we got out of the business too many medical issues. If you have kids be sure to lock it up just in case. Keep you something to eye wash right there also.


When a man is in the woods and talks and no women are there is he still wrong??

Excuse me? Neutralizing an acid with another acid? To neutralize an acid you need to use a caustic like NaOH (Sodium Hydroxide) or KOH (Potassium Hydroxide) etc !
Perhaps they went out of business because for not wearing proper PPE!!!
