    That's what I do, hose it off, wipe it down with a clean rag, dry it off.

    Q ? when using muriatic acid on alu, do you neutralize after, prior to welding? i uze that for zinc plating removal on bolts and nuts and neutralize with sodium bicarbonate (arm&hammer) type..

    Truckers use it to clean trucks. Part stores carry it for around $15 a gallon. I sometimes buy it by the case and use it full strength with a spray bottle.
    Ok thanks, I remember this stuff, used it many moons ago...

    Sorry.....been away............get yourself some disposable gloves.....and eye protection......and a few of those little acid brushes plumbers use for applying flux to copper before they solder it.......a little goes along way........might need a second coat if it's real dirty...........Home Depot sells some........body shop supplies or a good welding shop should have it.............Good Luck!

    Nice Job, Great photo's. The step by step is wonderful, shows those just breaking into the biz the RIGHT way to do things. Short cuts don't cut it. #13 stating you had to grind out welds and redo them, happens a lot with auto repairs. Just another detail not often mentioned (like it doesn't happen ).
