So, I've got a major project game that needs tons of love. It was stored in a damp environment, so the cabinet was a total loss, and there's rust on a fair number of parts.
The wiring matrices have been removed, and the lamp sockets on the GI line are in bad shape. A few segments were separate from the main run, and I decided to use Metal Rescue (which seems to me is the same as Evaporust for all intents and purposes) to see if I could salvage them. Sure enough, the sockets cleaned up perfectly. (didn't have the forethought to take a "before" photo) I hit them with Boeshield to keep them from rusting again and felt pretty sporty.
So...the next step would be to go ahead and bathe the whole rest of the GI line in the same way. My question for the panel is, some of the bulbs on this line are on lamp boards - would Metal Rescue damage those boards? It would save a ton of work to simply be able to dunk the whole loom of wiring rather than clip off and re-solder all the lamp sockets...
