Hi Kevin,

Yes, don't do that, would be my suggestion.

A damp sponge and some time will do an equally good job without potentially 
ruining something in the process (would be easy to do with a pressure washer!).
It's not going to take that long to do it carefully, as opposed to flailing 
away with a pressure washer!  Hammarlunds are no different from any other 
radio,,,, if they're dirty, spend some time and clean it up...it's worth 
the effort, and you wont wreck anything

It's a good receiver... and it will look good with minimal effort... congrats!
