Re: Cleaning

Depends. What's on it? Is it just dust? Is it crud/grease? I'd start with an all surface glass cleaner-type product. A more abrasive measure would be Toothpaste and an old soft toothbrush -- works wonders on crud, but does have a polishing effect.

Remove the headlamp swith and the bezel for the RR Defogger.

Re: Cleaning

If it were mine the first step for me is warm water with mild dish soap (just a little bit) and soft bristle brush and then rinse and towel dry. Start gentle and elevate the aggressiveness with chemicals only as needed. Simple Green would be a next step. There are also threads on silver paint pens for redoing the paint on the raised sections that ought to be silver.

Thanks guys. It’s just an extra instrument carrier I had. Thinking of replacing original with broken screw holes. I think it’s from a Elco. picture original
