I did it this way!
by: Darrell

I used a wire brush to remove most of the rust, heated and dipped as described, the result is a fairly thin coating that is firmly fixed to the metal.

A very nice black finish that is hard wearing and weatherproof apart from where the shackle is in contact with any moving part.

Pitch I suppose you may know as Coal Tar used on the road surfaces mixed with chippings.

Also used to seal seams in wooden decks in the old days.

Post your results.

What is the Result?

What does the surface of the dipped part look like?

Can the part have surface rust prior to dipping.

Is pitch and tar the same substance?

I'm just asking, you know...
