Just read through your whole build. Really nice fabrication work and welding! Keep it up - I'm following with interest.

So ive been slowly tipping away doing a few bits and pieces
Mostly stripping and cleaning the hubs with wire brushes in the drill which is a pain
Another kit car builder dropped in last weekend and suggested electrolysis rust removal
This is something i was hoarding stuff for but was too lazy to actually do
so not long after that fella left i got cracking

I gave a part 6 hours and it was quiet clean which made me happy

So i Gave the knuckle 24 hours in the bath
And i have to say i am delighted with the results compared to the effort and time it took with the drill and wire brush

When i took it out of the bath it still had some flakey bits so i gave it a blast with the power hose to remove what was left
Then i dried it and ran over it with the wire brush
and gave it a coat of kurust
Also the process removes all the grease and grime and crap

Wow - I've been toiling away with a parts washer, pressure cleaner and wire brushes! That looks a lot easier.
