Quoted from PappyBoyington:
I was thinking about getting my habitrails re-plated, but I figured I would try Brasso first. I have used it on a Gottlieb Stargate many years ago and it stripped off all the gold and turned it silver. But this is a Bally and I thought I would see if the gold would hold up.
Turns out it did and it took off all the tarnished looking spots. I'm very happy with how it turned out. Don't slather it on, just put some on a micro fiber tool and rub lightly. You will see immediate results. Just be careful and try it on a small area first. Maybe all Shadows are not the same. But mine worked out great. No need to get them plated now.
You can see in this picture where I have started on the left side.
This is completed. Looks fantastic!
Sorry, I don't have better pictures but I didn't plan on sharing this.
WOW....that looks really good. I tried some on mine recently and had a hard time telling if it was shiny brass or shiny silver colored as if I was removing the brass plating with the brasso. So I stopped and just cleaned with Simple Green. I may need to try again after seeing these....looks really good.
