    Stick them in the oven at 200° for a couple hours.

    sure thing is a very anti-corrosive primer , it stops rust better than a lot of rust inhibitors advertised today ,it was develped in the 1920 for FORD , and was used by army /navy airforce

    there is a zinc -phosphate very different

    Awesome! Thanks for the link, I will consume them. Figured you had a smarter way to preparing parts.

    Cool, you used the good stuff ! I see you took my word on not using it in an enclosed space too, bravo ! Damn near as good as powder coating after it cures. No need for baking in an oven when you live in Florida, a few hours in the sun will work just fine. Still have to hang the parts in the shade for a while before you can handle them. Zinc Phosphate is fine on the interior surfaces, Zinc Chromate is for parts that get wet.

    Most of these cars we restore will outlive us by 50 years because we put waaaay more effort into corrosion resistance than the OE's did back in the 60's, 70's, 80's and...nobody restores 90's stuff anyway.

    What is the dry time before handling, is there a different dry time before handling between the Zinc Phosphate and the Zinc Chromate?

    Electric oven, not gas. And wait until the wife is out of the house for the day. And offer to prepare baked fish for dinner. ;)

    Use your outdoor barbeque grille. Works just like the oven inside only bigger parts fit.
