    Now that I have the bright trim on my 500B knobs nice and shiny, what's the best way to keep it that way?
    Was there a factory finish on them?
    What have you done that worked long term?

    Thanks,
    Jef

    I think some folks recommend spraying with clear lacquer.

    Clear lacquer is a bit on the permanent side, but a couple coats of auto was should work just fine--will need repeating from time to time, but easy enough to get back off and polish again.

    Shine them up with Blue Magic Metal polish, and give them a couple coats of clear lacquer. Then keep yer mitts off them for 48 hours to let the lacquer cure.

    if you decide you hate the lacquer, it will come off with acetone or lacquer thinner but you'll want to do that with the brights not on the knob.
