Servicing history, environmental conditions, and humidity levels, etc. vary from Featherweight to Featherweight. On some Featherweights, the original clearcoat may have worn through leaving the decals exposed. Most cleaners have small amounts of moisture which, in the cleaning process, can become trapped in the clearcoat. Oil from hand or servicing he machine can also soften or lift the clearcoat. Be sure to test a small inconspicuous area first. The process described here is a procedure The Featherweight Shop has tested and found to give great results on the Featherweights that still have the clearcoat intact
Once you have cleaned your machine apply the Zymol Carbon Wax, using your fingers, in the back-and-forth or side-to-side motion. Next, wipe the surface clean of any excess wax, using a soft 100% cotton cloth. In a few hours the wax will cue, giving a protective coating to the surface of your Featherweight.
The same product and methods can be used to clean the tan and white Featherweights, as well as repainted machines.
