Hi All

Currently going through a bit of a resto.

My engine and box are a bit tired looking.

What’s the best way to clean them and make them look nice and bright silver again?

Might be better way than simply cleaning?

Thanks

Vapour blasting brings back original factory look
Wire brush looks ok for a while but brings a lot of small marks on the metal,corrodes after a while and looks dog deck if you can't get into all the small indents
Diy soda blaster will clean alot of tarnish off. If you clean it with cheap nasty acidic wheel cleaner first it'll take off more
 
Cheap alternative is degrease followed by variety of wire wheels on a drill. Finish will emery sandpaper. Clean off and spray clear lacquer. Should be enough of a key to stick.
