Default Polishing knobs.

Trying to clean the knobs on my CR100 (I've got 5, I love them) having tried a buffing wheel, T cut and several polishes, a friend gave me (I had better not name it) a car polish with PTFE containing camauba wax and being nonabrasive. Unbelievably the knobs actually looked like new. Good for paint work as well, try it and see.

Thought it may be against the rules. Auto Kit Professional is the name on the bottle. Like all radio collectors I have been polishing for a number of years 50 or thereabouts, it's the best I have ever used.
