Some nice scores there. I guess that's what I like about sales like that, you never know what you're going to find!

Carb cleaner! I used it to clean paint off one of mine. Use the little hose that come taped to the can...it will let you spot clean it! Unconventional, but it worked! Try a little spot on the bottom first, to make sure it doesn't hurt the paint underneath though!
