    Ash tray aluminum holder. Recommendations on better cleaning or should I paint it?
    I have soaked in White Vinegar/Water for 30 hours. Wire Brush and 000 steel wool.
    I would appreciate any recommendations or possible solutions.

    Thanks

    I painted mine with a metallic spray. Not chrome.

        Thanks, they were in good shape before, I made them a little better, I am getting the matching ashtrays powdercoated right now as well. Are you in a rush? Lemme get the ashtrays back from powdercoater if that's ok?

        Those look really nice. How do you attach them back to the ashtray door? Pop rivets?

        My bad. I was thinking the ashtray itself was being restored. Looks like yours is painted black. Either way it looks great!
