I'm taking a short break from pinball tinkering to get this Brass cash register restored. It's been on my to-do list for 4 years now. I'm excited to get her done. I'm going to mirror polish the bronze case but I don't want the maintenance. To keep it shiny it needs to be cleaned with brasso once a week...... forever. No thank you. My plan was to use the 2k rattle cans to clear it but I read that I shouldn't. Lots of sources online say I should not put a lacquer clear on antique brass but no one ever says why. Does anyone here have any experience with this? Does 2k clear have any lacquer in it? Know a better way to keep the shine? I'm all ears.
