|So watching Adam Savage's video where he compares his ultimate build against the real deal, he talks about the stripping away the existing bluing with white vinegar.
Yep, I knew about this process . . . I "think." I believe you drop the parts in white vinegar for an hour and you're good to go.
He says the process left the perfect patina, and I agree.
But . . . does anyone know if he re did bluing, or clear coated, or anything else after? Do you need to do that if you don't want rusting?
