Philco S-4627

Post by jsweinrich on Thu Jun 22, 2017 11:04 pm

New member here. Not sure if car radios are appropriate for this forum. I'm restoring 10 of these radios. Just now getting to the aesthetics. These guys are of the 1941 to 1948 vintage. The six push buttons are made from some type of plastic, definitely not Bakelite and they have a good bit of oxidation. What is the best way to remove the oxidation and shine them up?

I soaked the ones on my 48 Plymouth in ammonia and warm water. After about 15 minutes the oxidation wiped right of with a soft rag. I hope this help's.

Thanks, i"ll try that. I did run them through the ultasonic cleaner with Dawn, Murphy's, and Pinesol. Got the crud off but the oxidation stayed...
