{Collins} Re: Needed Cleaning Suggestions



one more weigh in ...  Scott is so correct on the film residue, and Jim
Brannigan got you off to a good start, indeed do all that Jim suggest, I
however don't usually remove the PTO, but sometimes do the PA cage in it's
place , but do tie a rag around the PTO assy . to keep it from chaffing or
scratching the chassis..but now the difference to avoid the residue look..
back in 98' when we had the 2CA convention in Dallas, Butch enlightened us
about Selig  CP-43 this product was cut on a 50/50 basis with water,
thoroughly cleaned and washed off with the distilled water, distilled water
leaves no streaking or spotting.  when you ask about the Sleigh cp-43 you
find lots of major manufactures use it in their finishing process's as I
recall it was HP that brought this product into prominence.. after all this
is done pop the unit into the oven at some very low temp. 125-or there
abouts. but for a long time. opps I omitted a very important process, keep
your good heavy duty vacuum at the ready. this is used ALL the TIME, just
continue to vacuum all the water all the time.. then after as best you can
go back and pick up the warming oven process.. the CP-43 will leave the
chassis very clean and bright .. the results will look like, what you are
wanting..   a frequent rotation of the trimmers will be useful that they
tend to stick, just keep them free.. good luck.. YMWV  mac/mc
