:shock: no to wire wool :shock:

i know you have just seen my cleaning thread - but for others find out what works for other members on here first

old wifes tales don't always work

it might also be that a acid oxide bath will work better for it to eat the rust as if it has a smoked chrome look you don't know it that when polishing it up it doesn't turn turn to a silver chrome ?

best to get pictures up first so we can see what it is like

cheers B
