Most are aware that the Canon AE-1 and it progeny, the AE-1 Program (and assorted siblings), have tops and bottoms made of plastic. Canon spent considerable R&D to 'fool' the public into thinking that those tops and bottoms were metal, as, back then, in the mid-70s, deviating from metal was anathema.

But, with time, the silver coating wears on parts, especially at the strap-lug area, revealing a rather ugly white plastic underneath. Are there any simple ways of touching up this plastic so it goes back to the original silver color? - David Lyga
