How do you restore an oxidized HSF? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
How the hell do you rub inside the fins? Thats just for looks, there must be a way to restore it completely. Like dipping in something. Like lemon juice. Also do use iso alcohol, it smudges

Try vinegar. Pour in bucket, put the HSF in it for a couple of minutes and see if it doesn't take care of it. Works like a charm for copper at least. Research it first, before you do anything though.
