    Default rusty metal window frame

    what's the recommendation for cleaning up this degree of rust from the glass frame?

    Evapo-rust work good; then use salt water soaked wadded up aluminum foil as suggested, works really well.

    Only one way to find out! I dunno, never had to Re-chrome anything; but the rustiest pachinko I restored turned out pretty decent! Checkout the thread with the fishing theme model C I finished up recently!
