FYI I've been using this for awhile and it works awesome! Had some really gummy rust preventative on tubing and this stuff literally melts it away. My local ACE Hardware carries it.

Cleaned off the table, made sure it was level, and then started working on getting frame rails set in place. One more measurement and I'm calling it good.

Took my 14 bolt to a local guy for machining. I'm happy with the work he did. He's also putting 8x6.5 pattern on my rotors and hubs.
