THAT?
Restored CHEAPLY?

NO!
Possible parts unit, or just chuck it in the garbage bin.

Rust doesn't affect plastic, bit of a wipe and it should be fine.

I'm in the turntable parts business. I'd throw the platter into the aluminum recycle bin and the rest in the trash. And I'd be wearing gloves while I handled it!
