    I will wait to hear your results Mark! Call me a coward but I will let you have a pop first! I do own some dental picks(oddly enough ) so if it works out I will have a go. Cheers chaps, Leon.
    Well here is hoping to success. And if a success we will call it the MLM method (Mark/Leon/Michael). You could become famous!

    Hi Michael, I have left my lid well alone as it is to good to "experiment" with, but if Mark comes back with positive results then I may have second thoughts! Leon.

    I have used vehicle "bug and tar" remover with success. Just add it in small amounts and avoid surrounding paint. It doesn't damage the paint , but it can remove the dirt and patina.
