I am helping another Boat Anchor afficianado restore a sadly abused
75S-1 that had a lot of crud in the chassis including various forms of
capacitor leakage, dust and various insect remains.  To quickly clean
the crap out of the top and underneath of the chassis I used a can of
Valvoline Brake cleaning spray.  This stuff really worked great. It has
a plastic tube so it can be directed into crevices and it cleans
oxidation, oil, dust and gunk from the components and didn't harm any of
the paint or lettering or parts.  It just flushes it out FB.  It will
also do something with car brakes but I don't know what.  Chassis is dry
and clean in a few minutes so we were able to start work on it.  Just
thought I would pass it on.  Its available at auto supplies.
