How to clean the gauge cluster?

Alright rewired my whole jeep and only thing left is to put the gauges back in but I wanted to clean them really well.

Ive tried to do a few searches and cant seem to find anything with a yj type cluster. Someone said use a eraser? or brillo pad? just doesnt seem right?

Do I have to clean the whole board or just clean the little copper connection where the harness and bulbs plug in?

I have an 87 wrangler btw!

Thanks Joey!

for the circut board connections use an eraser.. For the clear part of the gages a little rubbing compound works pretty well

I just clean the connections.

No purpose in cleaning the whole thing, imo. It appears to be covered except at the connections by a thing piece of plastic.
