CE Panel

im in the process of rewiring my CE,do i have to take out the metal clips in the panel that hold the backside fuse wires or can i just wire brush them and put wires back on? the first few were singles and a double-easy to get out,now im on a four and a five bar that wont come out to clean.wire brush them and go on? thanks for input or advice!

I don't think those are meant for in/out, I would not wire brush either in case they are plated, just clean with a good electrical contact cleaner. If your CE panel has any serious corrosion or damage, find a clean one used and skip the pigs ears remodeling.

I wire brushed mine with a brass brush. Worked fine.
