I took the door off my 6 case and removed the chrome strip.  Low and behold what do ya know, rust.  Not a lot, but I knew it was there before I even removed it.  I'm trying to keep it original, but man...
I'm thinking Bull Frog, then rust stop and wax before putting the strip back on.  Any suggestions?

If memory serves your not restoring this machine correct... so if your just looking to clean It up.. I would first try some rubbing compound and a good microfiber towl and start scrubbing..

Rubbing compound not working very well.  Next stop, Navel Jelly. 
It would be a great idea for someone that has preserved machines/coolers to make a how-to video.  keeping it original seems to be the new preferred route.

Navel-jelly (jellied  phosphoric acid) while probably attack the paint, use caution... Oo
