Hey guys I am busy restoring my Centaur pb. The original cabinet paint is in overall great shape, save a scratch or two. I have my ideas on how to give this cabinet a good clean but I would be interested in any suggestions you would have to bring back the shine. This looks like smoke was not an issue but I doubt this thing has been cleaned in years. What cleaner would you use? Is there a product like Armor All that would give it nice sheen? What should I avoid? I think I may roll some black on the inside walls. How about touch up of the black? is that a mistake or can it be done? What I am looking for is your experience....thanks!

Go to your local dollar tree store and buy a bottle of la’s totally awesome. Spray on, let sit for thirty seconds, then wipe off. Test in a corner by the back legs just to make sure that it doesn’t do any damage to paint. Several people have used this product and swear by it.
