The Process:

1. First I removed all the components.

2. I dry cleaning the components as best as I could with a toothbrush.

3. I soaked all the rusted screws and bells in white vinegar for some times andcleaned them with the toothbrush, I also had to use a fine sandpaper to clean the rusted bell.

4. I removed the old chipping paint of the base using a steel wire brush on an angle grinder.

5. I then painted back the base with 3 layers of some glossy black spray paint.

6. Then I reassembled everything.
