So I picked this up yesterday and I’m going to tear into it this weekend. From my research Its my understanding that the fount is chromed and the vent is nickel plated. Is there something I should use to clean up the chrome before polishing? Also is there any surprises I should know about the  disassembly of this one D3372F47-9B95-4036-9132-3654A5DC504C.jpeg  5FD38504-A076-488F-AEDB-DD93E247B3D8.jpeg  E0CD90FC-D5E1-4A5E-9A0B-83129201487F.jpeg

Hey James...if the fount is chrome I'd be very careful to clean the dirt off via chemical cleaner like Simple Green before rubbing on it....I know from my car restoration days that chrome is VERY thin, and easy to scratch through.  Not nearly as thick or forgiving as nickel

Rubing
Start off with Simple Green then move to Easy Off oven cleaner followed by Mothers or Blue Magic
