There is no clear coat over the brass script decal of a KG2C so you can clean it very carefully with Brasso or ?. I would try to be as meticulous as possible because Brasso is abrasive so it will leave fine finish scratches on the polyester between the letters. There are some other products that also work. flits,lemon juice..tabasco sauce! grin There was a very recent thread on this exact issue so ...search on. wink

As I mentioned in the other thread, I have found that you have to be careful with Brasso; if it gets into any crevices it dries to a white powder which can be a devil to remove.

Paint thinner,naptha or mineral spirits will clean up that brasso residue,than you can buff that area with compound where it may have dulled the polyester,than you can use paint thinner,naptha or mineral spirits to clean up that compund residue,than you can maybe hand glaze the area. Very simple and easy procedure. grin
