Yeah, maximizing the anode surface area is one key to the succes of this technique. A setup like your tank is ideal.
The plastic mesh is an interesting idea...I'll have to give it a try next time.
For a while I was trying to use electrolysis to de-rust some headlight buckets from a 1929 Ford truck...with very limited success. Electrolysis at the inside surface of the headlight bucket was especially poor. I thought that suspending an electrode in the headlight bucket would help, but it wasn't an overwhelming success either. Maybe part of the problem is that most of the headlamp bucket was originally copper plated. I suppose there could a preferred path for the electrical current that would inhibit electrolysis of the iron oxide.
