Refinishing Lego parts for a Silver Champion #8458.
I recently picked up a Silver Champion http://brickset.com/sets/8458-1/Silver-Champion
that has seen better days. I'm guessing this model was either kept as a display in a smokey bar or pool-hall, or was on display in a serious smokers home and then locked away in a damp storage area. When I got the model, I wore gloves to break it apart and then disinfected the parts, soaked them and washed the parts thoroughly, 3 times. The grey parts are all mostly discolored and stained, same as the clear engine parts. I was able to get a few new replacement parts from Lego parts, but I want to get some tips and how to's on refinishing or repainting the light colored parts. Any and all help is appreciated. Thanks.
