    Dimas, Really nice job. I have a SSch36 in almost the exact same shape (shell only). Received it for Christmas and have been thinking about cleaning it up. I've been looking at the Restoration section for the best way, but yours came out great so I was just wondering which method you used. Would like to try it on mine. Thanks, John

    35 % mix of warm water with Oxalic asid, then a abrasive cream for the dishes cleaning and a rough sponge.
