Default Re: Yaesu FRG7700 shields cleanup

As a further comment, when cleaning the metal surface don't use anything abrasive, as any scratches will show through the tin plate finish. You most likely will need to use a pickling solution to prepare the metalwork. Likewise don't touch any of it with bare hands, or you will always see your finger prints through the tin plate finish. The plating is only a few microns thick, and is much thinner than a spray paint finish.
