The line residue on this reel was just about the worst I had ever seen and once I got it all off (with rubbing alcohol) the spool was loaded with scratches. Thankfully they were not deep and came out with light wet-sanding ...which of course put a zillion very light scratches in the soft aluminum that I removed with a toothbrush and some Noxon.
All other metal parts were rough cleaned with Noxon and then final cleaned with Flitz. The back plate was already gorgeous, so I left it as is. The front plate was dull and had a very slight touch of browning, which I cleared up with Flitz.
So, I now have a collection of two reels.
It's growing like wild fire ...totally out of control !
ps: Sorry the pictures are all different sizes ...I didn't bother to size them. The "before" pictures are by the seller.
