Joe,

I've had good luck cleaning/polishing cadmium plated chassis with Flitz
metal polish.  Available around here in most big chains (Wal-Mart,
K-mart, auto supply stores).  As long as your chassis isn't totally
grubby, I'd suggest trying this rather than the more drastic
chassis-bath/overall spray/rinse/dry and pray no moisture gets in if
cans, power transformers, etc. approach.

Here's a link to a section of my web pages showing the results on a
Hammarlund that was not corroded, but very dull.
