Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by shinny It worked
I have a 2008 Kawasaki Vulcan 900 classic LT with rusty spokes. I used this product and they are back to looking almost new. I need to go back and do one more application in one or two very small areas but this rim looks amazing again. And I was looking for a replacement rim. No more! A friend told me to paint the rim. I'm glad I didn't . This product outdid itself.
I left it on the rim for 10 minutes.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Rambo There really never is a fix in a can
I had a cracked window sill from the house settling. Water got in and rusted the re-bar inside. Expanded and the cracks starting growing. I chipped it out by hand and wire brushed it. Applied this stuff by directions. It didn't do anything. Ended up using a wire wheel on my drill, got rid of rust by elbow grease.
I would not buy this again

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jermx Water main had rust all on pipe
My water main had a leak in the pipe. There was nothing but thick rust that covered it. I got the naval jelly and out it on there and started to sand it and pick away at it. The jelly got the rust soft to just rumb off. Thanks to this product I could save my main water line.

I think it is a reasonable expectation that a product like this should have a brush built into the cap. Many other similar products do such as anti-seize compound, pipe dope, etc.. Since it didn't, I had to turn around and go back to the store for a brush.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Drewbacca works great on surface rust
It can only convert what it touches, it isn't a magic potion. Use a wire brush to remove all loose rust before application. Apply more than one coat.
I've used this on a lot of touch up jobs, followed by a coat of rust-converter with phosphoric acid (from the same brand... lots of good brands out there, but Rustoleum isn't one of them with their rust-converter formula; that said, Rustoleum's rusty-metal primer is good stuff fortified with zinc which will help stop the rust cycle).
The last big project was an old bicycle frame with unknown internal rust. I taped off all the exits and dumped the entire bottle of naval jelly inside. I rotated the frame around a few times and waited a while before emptying and flushing. It was reassuring to see all of the little black specs floating in the pink slime that is this product... evidence that the rust had been converted from iron-oxide which is rust colored to iron-phosphate which is black.
This is one of those products that will always be in my chemical locker, great stuff!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by rms59 Not good at all
This stuff is a gel and application is smooth. The problem is that the solution is weak and wouldn't remove the surface rust on my stainless steel grill cover. I let it sit for an hour keeping it moist by using more product but it did a poor job. Find something else.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Squid This product is easy and safe to use just follow the directions on the bottle.
To use this product all I had to do was remove the existing dirt and loose scale with a wire brush, apply the Naval Jelly, wait five minutes, then wash it off, let it dry, then I oiled the surface to protect it while I sharpened it. It was a cross cut saw. It is a great product to use for this type of application.
