Jockey Box Build – Cleaning the Cooler Hardware

The metal hardware for this cooler is limited to the hinges as well as the main clasp on the front of the cooler. Both sets of chrome plated hardware were tarnished and showing bits of rust. I used a brass wheel on my Dremel tool for the initial cleaning. Some polishing compound on a cloth wheel for the Dremel brought some life to the old chrome plating. A final buff with a clean cloth finished the job. The hardware isn’t perfect, but is good enough for this Jockey Box. We will reattach the hardware with new stainless steel screws.
