Thanks Buddy...... she's a keeper  smile

I have over 20 machines, some hard to get ones too.... several rare coolers etc..... but the 7up 88 is bar far my crown jewel of the collection.
If you ever see it for sale for $ 250 on Ebay, it's because I'm dead and my wife has no clue  laugh

So I started to clean the front door of the machine with what little FLITZ I had left (gotta get some more from Amazon)

It's coming out pretty good... but it's taking a LOT of time to buff out the surface rust as it seems to be really baked on.

I did the "7" but not the UP just to see the difference, and on the angle picture, I did the back top corner (that was the first corner I did to see how it reacts to the paint)
I also tried to use my buffing / polishing machine set on low speed, but I found that it just wasn't working as well as good old fashioned hand rubbing (that's what she said).

If the temps get too cold to be in the garage, then I'm bringing the machine to the man cave to do a little at a time while watching hockey lol

It looks great.  I am just curious did you wash down the machine with soap and water first and the use Flitz?  Also, did you actually use a buffer with flitz or just hand buff it?

I only hosed down the machine and washed the compressor area.

Although it takes away the rust.... it doesn't take away the scratches or dents lol
The bottom should look better after I uses Flitz, but don't expect miracles  oops

I remember using FLitz on another machine with my buffer at 1 (out of 6) and the Flitz can work a little too well, and it will take off the paint pretty quickly.
I find hand use to be the best with it.
