    That Charvel Strat is beautiful. Black on purple works so well.

    Also, that second bass drum beater patch ftw.

    To clean rust off your chrome you can do two things

    To get rust off the chrome parts
    Step one - Strip all your hardware off the shells.. Lugs,tension Rods,hoops
    Step two - Buy Steel wool either 00 or 0000 do not go any finer or corase than that.
    Step three - Polish am buff chrome with steel wool lightly scrubbing it do not go crazy

    For Derusting Tension Rods
    1. Pour a bowl of Coke Cola an soak Tension Rods least 24 hr then wipe off with steel wool
    2. Also Remember to use machine oil to re-grease the tension rods after wiping off coke cola.

    I did this trick with my 19 year old Fourm Series Kit an rewarpped in a beautiful red sparkle Delmar wrap and it looks brand new

    Good luck with your restore hope to see it when it’s done

    Not many places in Australia sell wrap.
    Here's a place in Perth, and they only sell glitter wrap through their Aussie store (others can be bought via their Japan store):

    Take the wrap off, use Aqua Coat to smooth out any imperfections in the surface of the bare wood and custom paint/lacquer it. Clean that hardware with a good chrome polish.
