    Hot soapy water, a stainless steel scourer and plenty of elbow grease.

    Nice job cleaning mate! That limescale stuff is a nightmare to get off (I use a hammer) iv got a casting you can borrow just pm me nearer the time with your address and I will send it. Unless your going to be around Gosfield Essex any time.
    Where's the display going to be?

    All the best Andy
