 Automatic dishwashing detergents often help brighten those up quite a bit;
same with master cylinder reservoirs. Probably best not to run them through
the diswasher along with the good dinnerware, though.... ;)

Subject: [TR] restoring/cleaning the plastic radiator overflow bottle

Does anyone have any suggestions on cleaning/restoring my radiator overflow
bottle? I might also add that I have the original windshield washer fluid
bottle and would really like to use that too. The radiator overflow bottle
looks like it has the usual rust and coolant residue inside it so I was kind
of leaning towards trying CLR or something like that..
I already zinc plated the two original mounting brackets, now the original
bottles REALLY look crappy...
Thanks in advance,
