I was wondering how this was coming along, one question, how the hell did you discover this little nugget?
I have been painstakingly rubbing everything down with a mixture of WD40 and factor 50 sun tan lotion.
Smokers toothpaste works well too.
The suntan lotion trick I found recently.
After finding out that factor 50 has a load of aluminium oxide as an ingredient I used it to remove the damaged coating from my spectacles when the coating became worn, thus annoying the hell out of me.
So I reckoned that a bit of WD40 in the mix would ad a bit of lube and solvent. It works a treat. For particularly grubby areas or for hardened gaffa tape glue a bit of fine wire wool some WD40 and some factor 50 and gentle rubbing work wonders.
Works best with a comfy chair, Radio 4 and decent single malt to hand. I must have spent 10 hours over the last two days doing just that. The Highpath is looking grand though.
