Good day,
I want to clean and polish the tank of my 228D. Anyone know what the material is? Is it plated or solid?
thank you
Nickel on mine. They clean up with some oven cleaner or soap and water and #0000 steel wool. Rinse well then use Mothers Mag polish with the same size steel wool then buff it out with paper towel or cloth towel.

Some have buffing wheels but you can burn through nickel if you don't keep it moving during that process.
