I just picked up a dark manganese kit from Shooters Solutions. I know nothing about parking... shoulda known when I couldn't find explicit 'how to' directions on their website. The directions they sent with the kit look as though it were written by a lunatic... some sentences just don't make any sense.
SO... lemme see if I have this straight, from those of you who've done it before...
I need to prepare the reciever by sandblasting, or acid bath?? Acid bath? It said something about Naval Jelly and then something illegible about 'being careful' with it... metal removal... etc.
I haven't got a blaster. The naval jelly method. What is it.. what do you do.. and how well does it work? You leave the jelly on it for... how long? What's it supposed to do? Rinse that stuff off, keep it clean and free of oils and then it's okay to park, right? Is that correct? Anybody ever do it that way? I'm assuming the blaster is a better way to go, but I really didn't count on having to dish out $$ for one just to park a reciever.
The parking itself, if I understand this correctly...
I mix the correct amount of solution with the correct amount of distilled water, put in a non-ferrous container and bring up to 180-200 degrees (but don't boil) suspend my item for anywhere from 5 minutes to 45 minutes (??? as per instructions??) until desired effect or stops fizzing? Rinse it off, hose it down, wipe it down.. with the water displacing oil... coat it with a good oil and that's that, mattress man... correct??
Two pages of instructions and it still wasn't crystal. Spend $50 and hire a damned copywriter for gods sake!!
