Ah, it's toward the bottom of the imgur album I linked to in the original message: https://imgur.com/a/srWGl

you'd be surprised how much better they will look by just hitting them with some steel wool before you do anything... a lot of that 'loose' rust will just wipe off and you can see better what you're working with.
What's been your experience with using Citric Acid instead of vinegar?
