    Hi All,
    What is the best way to clean the rust spots on MH reflectors? Small bits of rust that are inside the reflectors

    Seriously try coke, take a old dirty 5cent coin and drop it in coke leave it overnight and take out? U will understand then. We used to have small rust spots on one of our old cars bumbers the easy way would be to sand it off the affordable way is to pour coke over it 2 times a day for a week. Lastly the peopl e that own coffee shops once their espresso machine gets dirty(those nozzels and stuff, dont really know the lingo) the put a glass of coke underneath and next day clean

    Yep, coke works wonders on old rusty bike parts as well. Also if you need to put out a fire in a hurry, you can't beat a well shaken 2l bottle of any fizzy drink......
