Heat gun to restore color of Daiwa reels?
I just obtained a number of countdown reels and will be tearing them down to clean and prep for possible resale. Has anyone ever tried to restore the faded gray to the original black color? I have tried several cleaners, scothbrite, toothbrush etc to try and scrub them to no avail. I just saw a youtube video where they restored auto trim by using a heat gun. I was wondering if anyone has ever tried this on these reels. Im going to wait a week or so and see if Diawa returns my emails, if they don't offer a solution I will try the heat gun on one frame and let everyone know the good, bad or ugly.
