Black crackle finishes can be restored to their original factory appearance by first washing with a mild soap and warm water. Apply a light coating of liquid furniture polish; let dry for a few minutes and then wipe off with a clean, soft cloth. The old panel will look as good as new. The same cleaning process works well on bakelite meter cases and knobs.
