So I'm working on my first (EarthShaker) and I'm rebuilding the flippers. I've pulled them from the machine and stripped down completely. I'm cleaning the Flipper base (using alcohol because it looks like aside from grease and grime, there is ear wax on it (is this a Shrek?)).
Anyway, I'm getting a haze on the plate and I'm thinking as long as I'm polishing things with Mothers, I may as well polish these items. That will only be seen when doing maintenance, that doesn't really matter. Really, am I going to do this? Then I think, crazy as it sounds, do I need to be concerned about creating a fire hazard by waxing those? Is the wax left behind a fire hazard in an area where there will most likely be sparks.
So two questions.
1) Fire hazard, yes or no?
2) What is the most detail oriented thing you did on a restore (that most likely no one will ever see) in going beyond just getting the dirt out?
