You may want to use a lacquer thinner to remove the clearcoat, then decide whether to keep the brass polished by hand or to apply new clearcoat, which would be a delicate process that would still be vulnerable to being chipped and scratched.laguna_b wrote:How did you treat these "brass" parts? I have an Elektra gold 60s that uses what seems to be a varnish like overcoat on brass. It is a delicate finish and was damaged from citric acid wash overspray. Is this what was used for your machine brass parts or was it a plating?
This might be good as a new topic in the Repairs forum rather than continue discussing it in this Faema Marte thread.
