    hi

    I’ve got a 2 “ square 3 ft long section of chassis exposed at both ends open at the min .... an I want to remove the surface rust off the inside before I rust proof and close it off .

    I was thinking about improvising something to attach to a drain rod and drag it thru the inner chassis a few times to drag the surface rust off and clean it up .

    Any ideas

    Look for gun barrel brushes big bore ones
    Other than that Dinitrol products has an easier solution;)

    I've used one of these:

    mounted onto a 2ft Arbor in a drill.

    I have no idea where to source such an Arbor, but the brushes are available for very little money from Screwfix.

    I've made long arbors from bundy tubing - bash spindle of wire brush into end, tack it in place . . . spin with cordless drill.

    It's not going to get into the corners of rectangular section chassis legs though . . . how about Fertan? Not used it myself, but . . .

    A length of Bowden inner cable doubled over and the ends held in the chuck of a drill, just shorten the cable as you get nearer the end as you do NOT want the cable to come out while it's still whipping round!.
