Ludwig Acrolite

Post  paradd on Thu Jan 17, 2013 6:28 am

Hi, I am tiding up a late 70s/early 80s Acrolite I brought in recently. For the shell I was going to use CRC; I normally use this for all metals once de-rusted as it cleans, polishes and protects. Does anyone have a better idea as I have never had a aluminium drum before? Cheeers,,,,,

Idea citrus and citrus cleaners are used for de oxidising aluminium and they wont harm the surface as a chemical ( might).

Good question. I've had a few Acolites and I've just used warm water with a hint of soap. I use a metal polish on chrome snares but I keep it simple with the Acros. I finish it with an auto wax. Let us know how you get on with the CRC if you try it, or the citrus. I use a citrus cleaner to get off glue residue etc - works a treat.

Hi guys, I used a little kero for the sticky stains (I think citrus has some kero like compounds in it) and finished all metal work in CRC. The shell was in pretty good nick anyway and the final result looks good. Cheeers,,,,,,,,
