So I mixed the concentrate and distilled water in the correct proportions in a plastic container and poured distilled water in the rinse container. When I put a single nut in the mix, it started to change color almost immediately.
I added the rest of the hardware and waited, instructions say 5 minutes max. I pulled at 3 minutes and put everything in the rinse water. No pictures of this step, but it’s as simple as it sounds.
I took the parts out of the rinse and dried them with compressed air.
The final step is a sealer, a liberal amount of Krown KL73 was applied and left to soak into the oxide.
I’m pretty pleased with the results…
