    Hi everyone. My rangefinder is bolted to my helmet and it has rusted.

    I have a pic of my helmet but the file size is too big. In the meantime could anyone help me? Thanks.

    Any kind of break free type spray. In the shop we use PB Blaster to loosen rusted door hinges, springs, bolts, and battery terminals.
