Not really electrical problem more of a make it shinny kinda thing.
Cleaning the metal parts of the speaker assembly and there is a gooy grease like substance.Is this some sort of factory coating.As the part numbers painted on the metal seem to be on top of the goo.I will like to clean this off. I have tried paint thinner, engine cleaner , carb cleaner no luck.
Any ideas?
