I've used Rub 'n Buff to tidy up the disc carriers on a couple of older discs.

This picture shows the original tarnish on one, and after cleaning with scotchbrite and Simple Green metal cleaner on the other.




You can see in this picture how the stuff massaged into the metal changes the appearance. An old toothbrush or q tips would get into the tight bits.




The back of the carrier was almost black with years of untouched road grime. Same treatment with the cleaning, then a finger tip worth of the Rub 'n Buff massaged into the metal and voila!



Leave it a while to dry, then do as it says...buff. The more you buff the shinier it gets. It really feels like it just absorbs into the metal, and it spreads so easily that a tiny dab goes a long way. Amazing stuff.
