    that's the rustic finish that is the craze these days. Undiluted muriatic acid treatment then followed by 3% Hydrogen Peroxide treatments.

    Is that the peroxide with a bit of vinegar and salt? Not that you'd need the vinegar/salt if the HCl wasn't thoroughly rinsed.

    no. no vinegar or salt, just peroxide. When it is humid out, which it never is in NM, it takes on a real nice color.

    i like the look of that, dont you/they worry about rapid corrosion/rusting out from just treating it with acid and peroxide? does peroxide nuetralize the acid and form some coating or somthing?
