Clean Connections

I am going to repleace all the fuses in my 1973 280c as they all look VERY old and brittle.

I have been told to make sure I disconnect the battery and clean all the connections on the fuse pannel.

What do you guys recomend to use to clean the posts?

(so far I have heard use scotch brite, I am assuming they ment scouring pads)

I used some fine steel wool and a little bit of electrical contact cleaner to soften every thing up. replacing that last fuse is always hard for me with out small pliers as there is no space for your fingers on either side
