This is on deck for a fettle. Wondering what things my fellow GPA restorers recommend using on the paint of this Sears lantern to get the color to pop!
Thanks

Buffing compound or mother's is what I do. This one was in worse shape than yours and cleaned up nice and shiney.

I use mothers with a microfiber towel as well. It works wonders on paint.

Mothers mag?
My friends don’t call me “Lantern/lampie Levi”
for nothin’,if they did call me that.

Looking for bday lanterns 8/38, 8/41,

Mother's mag wheel polish, or Blue Magic.
I alternate them.

I just use a nice fine auto rubbing compound then a good car wax, it will make the fount look pretty sweet.

I use Mothers Polishing Compound. It cuts through the oxidation and puts a nice shine on the paint. It is made for paint. It is not has abrasive as a rubbing compound. I use Mag and Wheel on the non painted stuff. That is what it is made for.

Yes, what we're referencing is generally the Mag and Aluminum polish.

I've corrected lots of mistakes with this stuff.  Hides scratches and scuffs like magic.

That reminds me.  I need a new bottle.  😎

If I'm going to keep and use a lantern I now clean the fount well, wipe with alcohol then hit it with Clear Engine Enamel. 

Other lanterns I may deal away down the road get mothers or Johnson Car Wax, the old school paste stuff.

I use Mothers Brazilian carnauba wax on my painted founts, stove tanks and other painted parts. Works like a charm. 02D26354-3F8F-4EA0-9ABA-E6AB8CB1034E.jpeg 

Here is a 4/65 228F I just put back together and the fount shines beautifully

I use a mild solution of Dawn dish soap in luke-warm water with a soft brush (mushroom brush) or rag, followed by a good wipe-down with mineral spirits using a soft. clean rag. Then it gets a car wax job. The mineral spirits do an amazing job of taking off years of oxidized paint.

The mineral spirits won't damage water-slide decals, either:

That had seventy-three years of oxidized paint on it.
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.
