Now that I know how to remove the trim from this clock, the next challenge is cleaning the trim. It appears that these pieces are of light cast metal. My father would call this pig metal. What is the best way to remove the corrosion from these pieces and clean them so that they can be repainted? The metal case will be easy once the trim is removed because it is smooth with easy contours that will allow sanding. The corrosion is worse on some pieces than on others. I don't have any experience with this kind of restoration so any and all tips will be appreciated.
