But it will need work. I need to get the paint completely off and take care of the rust. Then it will be repainted with child safe non toxic paint. The rust will be dealt with using either an equal part mixture of vinegar and water or I will see if there are any non toxic primers that neutralize rust on contact. I know the vinegar/water mixture softens the paint also making it easier to scrape. It also helps that the rust, while on a lot of the cage, appears to be a thin coating. I can see good metal underneath the rust without having done anything but disassemble the cage. The original nuts and bolts will be replaced with stainless steel nuts and bolts. The original ones were rusty and looked like they were plated at one point. I'll keep them for non bird projects but they won't get used for this project. This cage is 5 feet tall, 32 inches wide and 22 inches deep. The usable height is more like 3 feet I think. It is well built though.
