  • Tech tip: cleaning those ribbed rocker switches

    Just a little tip: I've been trying to figure out how to clean the dirt out of ribs on those '63-'64 white rocker switches. Usually I use an old toothbrush, but it had no effect. I tried a Scotchbrite pad, but that didn't get into the grooves. Considered a wire brush but didn't want to mess up the plastic.

    Finally hit on using one of those fiberglass "nick sander" pens that they sell for removing little rust patches on your paint. The bundle of fiberglass threads scrubbed all the dirt out of the ribs, but was soft enough to not score the plastic.

    Thought I'd pass it on
