    Quoted from OLDPINGUY:

    Use a Product called Everbrite


    Everbrite sells a few different products. Which one do you use?

    I've experimented with Everbrite as well, and have the same results / observations as you.

    Quoted from OLDPINGUY:

    As I am polishing parts slowly as I go through this, I am coating. Even a lock down bar on a Bally EM Hayride, I had zero plating left looks great 2 years later.

    Quoted from OLDPINGUY:

    If you dont like the product, dampen a cloth, q-tip with Alcohol and remove it.
    Taking 2-3 layers off takes no time.

    I tried removing some that had hardened, this didn't work. Any idea what would work after Everbrite cures? Sanding?


    Answer to my own question from their FAQs.

    Xylene is a medium grade solvent cleaner that is used to remove residue from copper, brass, and other unpainted metals before coating. Xylene can also be used to remove Everbrite or ProtectaClear coatings from metal surfaces.
    Dentatured alcohol can be used instead of xylene for the final solvent wipe prior to coating bare or polished metals but it is not strong enough to remove the coating in most cases.

    More from the FAQs:

    How can I remove Everbrite or ProtectaClear?
    If you mess up the application or get an Everbrite Coating on a surface that you didn't mean to get it on like window glass, the coating can be removed with xylene or other solvents. Make sure to test an area of the surface to make sure that the solvent will not harm it.
    The coatings can also be removed with lacquer thinner but if the surface is to be re-coated, a final wipe with denatured alcohol or xylene is necessary to remove the oil in the lacquer thinner.
