So, Mark’s been hitting the parts hard recently. Obviously, a 1974 is going to have some grime and oxidization on it, so we need to clean them up a bit.

Give Mark a can of WD-40, some brushes and some steel wool and you get some great results!

Here’s a couple photos of the process…video coming soon!
