Advice on repairing this Angel 4
I picked up this A4 and it needs some TLC. In exhibit A you'll see the barrel threads are bent. What's the best way to fix this? In exhibit B you'll see the dried up paint in the crevices of the board. What's the best way to get that gunk out?

I'm sure you don't want to hear this but, I think the barrel threads are too bad off to repair. That said...
For the bent thrends, heat and a pair of pliers with "soft jaws" so that you don't scratch up the outside. For the board, any electronics store will sell electrical contact cleaner. Make sure it's safe to use on circuit boards and try not to spray it on the screen.

Friend of mine did worse and fixed it the ghetto way.... found a dye stainless and a vice grip.
But you fixed it so yay!

First sized a wooden rod to fit inside the body with a lathe and hammered it in, but it wasn't strong enough. Then we had a hunk of metal that was trimmed/beveled to fit and this was hammered through. It fixed the dent so the threads were then worked with a tap, a boomstick, and a lubricant essentially.
