IReOx (pronounced "e-re-ox") is a rust remover, not converter. It completely removes rust from steel, even getting into pits in the metal that mechanical stripping skims over. You dilute the concentrate to the recommended level and immerse the item to be de-rusted. Being immersed, the fluid gets into box sections and voids that would otherwise be inaccessible. Immersion time depends on level of rusting but nprmally takes between 3 and 10 days. It is hard to 'over-IReOx' so leave as long as necessary and just check on progress every few days.
The size and shape of items is only limited by the bath you create. Use containers or make your own large vat from OSB3 and line with our plastic sheeting available by the linear metre. We have made them large enough for whole panels and front crossmembers. IReOx does not affect rubber so suspension bushes can be left in place. It also doesn't attack paint (please test an area first) so we have used it to strip rust from the bottom of car doors without affecting the painted outer skin.
Some ideal uses: Fuel tanks: remove all petrol and fill with IReOx solution. Pressed steel front crossmembers: Difficult to strip internally, so immerse in IReOx bath. Suspension arms: IReOx won't hurt pressed in bushes and will loosen rusted in droplink nuts and bolts. Rusty cylinder heads: It will take all rust off the head including inside ports and water cooling channels. Corrosion siezed engine: Fill the cylinder block with IReOx, it will remove the rust between bore and rings (engine will obviously need rebuilding but at least the pistons can now be removed).
IReOx is based on natural molasses, a by product of sugar cane processing. It is therefore natural, harmless to humans and kind on the environment - yet more potent on rust than anything else you can safely use at home. It can be handled without special safety equipment but it does pong, so gloves are recommended.

THE FAMOUS SHAKE-N-BREAK BACK IN STOCK!
Shake-N-Break is a super quality American made air impact screw and fastener removal tool. It uses standard, changeable, 5/16" hex insert bits that fit most fasteners and screws in circulation. It slots into a standard air hammer with safety spring and used at low air pressure. The tool will loosen rusted, corroded, undercoated, painted, dirty, and overly tightened screws fast and efficiently. Vibration shakes the screw loose while you simply turn the screw with the attached handle. This simple, high quality tool finds its greatest use on cars, trucks, motorcycles, boats, and farm equipment. It loosens stuck fasteners in places like wheel openings, headlight doors, taillight lens, bumpers, striker pins, seatbelt bolts, floor pans, motorcycle engines, and thousands of other places.
No tool chest should be without one, it is a revelation!
The only tool we've found that will undo those MGB door hinge countersunk bolts that the factory kindly painted over at the front, and left exposed to corrode at the rear!
NOW COMES WITH UPGRADED SET OF 6 HARDENED BITS INSTEAD OF 3!
Uses your standard air hammer at low pressure, the tool takes care of the hard work, you control the rotation. So unlike other tools SHAKE-N-BREAK wont just rip the head to shreds. You can apply the rotation once you feel the fastener releasing.
PLEASE NOTE: We ship this product without its shrink packaging as it halves the cost of getting it to you!
BACK IN STOCK!
You know how sometimes a tool comes along that is much more expensive than the standard item on the market but once you've used it you'll never go back to the old way? The "Spot-Eze PRO" is the KING of spot weld removal drills. The adjustable and replaceable center starting/guiding bit allows the drill to start quickly and pre-punching isn't usually necessary. If you do not wish to pre drill the inner panel for later plug welding, the centre drill can be adjusted to any degree up to the cutting edge of outer drill flute for a non break through removal. It has a .350 inch = 9 mm cut diameter, which is the correct size to cut spot welds - how often have you found a 'standard' 8mm just cuts part of it out
If you've got more than one panel to release, or just like an easy life, the "Spot-Eze PRO" is definitely worth the investment.
It's made of tough 'M' series steel so wont go blunt after just a few welds
It's ADJUSTABLE centre drill allows it to be used for any application
It's a long term tool, you can even RESHARPEN it if you need to!
It can be used WITH OR WITHOUT the centre drill.
Our 'MGB Chassis To Front Spring Mount Strengthening' modification is a must have for all uprated MGB's.
This panel addresses one of the MGB's structural weaknesses. The MGB's front spring mounting point was adequate for the original car, but when more power is put to the rear axle, the springs bind up. This movement can be tough on the spring mount causing distortion of the floor and spring geometry. This modification is welded in between the spring mount and central chassis crossbar (in line with jacking point) which spreads the load over the chassis rather than the pressed floor.
This modification is also a must have if fitting anti-tramp bars, stopping any mount point flex, which reduces anti-tramp effectiveness and increases body stress.
You will neeed 2 per vehicle.
Please not that even though our ; 'MGB Chassis To Front Spring Mount Strengthening' is tried and tested on MGB's, some modification may be needed to take up tolerences in the bodyshell variations (factory differences or previous modifications etc.) These Items are made to order. They therefore have a 14 day lead time.
DON'T use masking tape, it goes dry and brittle and falls off or gets torn off when the loom is fed through apertures. Pen ink also fades off Masking tape, leaving you scratching your head on rebuild months or even years later.
TTACT tags are made from a high strength material that won't tear when the labelled item is fed through bulkheads and the special surface coating accepts ballpoint pen and marker without causing them to fade (try to keep out of bright sunlight though as some pens are better than others). You can even store your quality marker through the pack!
60 tags - usually more than enough for one car, come in a handy dispenser that allows you to write the Tag and remove it from its backing, even with grubby pinkies!
A ‘no brainer’ for anyone using Wet & Dry and cares about their finish. Pays for itself the first time you use it.
An old trick is to use a household soap in your bucket, but this bar is miles better. It's also scent and oil free, eliminating risk of contamination of the surface and minimising likely paint reaction. You also won’t end up smelling of 'spring fields' or 'apricot orchard’ and won’t get moaned at by your spouse/partner/lover/soap manager for stealing the ‘Imperial Lather’. It is also SLS free which helps reduce irritation if you’ve got your hand in a bucket all day sanding, sanding, sanding.
When finished, pop it back in the tin out of contact with air and you'll be able to use it again and again.
Approximately 3" x 1" Bar (75mm x 24mm)
Once you have punched a hole in your bodywork, you can make the panel stifferr than it was before and a heck of a lot more attractive, by using a dimple die of the correct size. The bend reinforces the panel and by using a punch and the die several times across a pnael you can both lighten and strengthen it whilst making it look like a racecar! Set the Die each side of the panel centred on the existing hole and then clamp together with a nut and bolt or use a hydraulic press.
The size stated is to match the HOLE size, so the dimple is formed larger.
Use our sheet metal punches if required to create the initial hole.
