Please share with us what you had to do to make the globe look like new? Was it cracked ... faded?

thanks guys.just for your info this is a glass body i got from jj before he broke it!a friend who does my truck lettering did the letters and stripes for me.i traded that for a super-duper rare repro caddilac lens i got from lastgas.chadhass,the globe cleaned up real nice,just a little base crack,but not noticable.and for those of you that dont know,my company name is "south shore heating and a/c" so it's a fantasy piece. do you think i could get a writeoff for advertising!!LOL mick
