Slight Orange Haze from Age on my Dig Dug Cabinet
« on: March 10, 2013, 01:43:45 pm »
Hey guys,

Finally moved the cabinet into my house and I noticed an orange haze that I did not notice in the garage.  It is more and likely from age but I weas hoping there was some sort of solution I could use to wipe away that orange without hurting the artwork underneath as it is an original Dig Dug artwork.  I tried some minor chemicals to get the dirt off and it looks better  but getting trid of that orange would make a world of difference.

orange haze? like smoke or discolored from age?

smoke can be removed with formula 409 or "LA's totally awesome cleaner" http://www.amazon.com/LAS-PURPOSE-CONCENTRATED-TOTALLY-AWESOME/dp/B0017KT3IM

age...not much you can do without messing stuff up.

Good to know...I did not think about it being smoke.  i will give 409 a try first...but yeah if that does not do it then I think I am out of luck unless I want to repaint.
