I'm sitting in the living room floor tonight rebuilding Holley 850 on the wifes persian rug. (Glad shes at work) The good news is this is a swap meet $100 buy and it is practically brand new, didn't tear a single gasket when I took it apart. The bad news is it looks like crap. Whats the best way to clean this thing up. I know I can buy that carb paint that looks like zinc coating but I really wanted to know if there are any tips on how to clean this thing up with out removing the zinc coating thats on it. Never-dull, my first try, takes it off. Soap and water didn't do a dern thing. Please clue me in!!!

And yes I'm sure I need to be in the paint forum, but thought I'd try here first

I've had good luck with the good ol' bucket of carb and parts cleaner. Never took the finish off a Qjet. It does take a bit of elbow grease and a toothbrush but it works well after a good soak.
