burnt daisy wheel

Hey y'all, I did a hot burn and left my daisy in to long. When I opened the dome the daisy wheel was brown. Please tell me there is a way for me to get it black again.

I thank you in advance...

    If the brown is rust, wash it with a scotchbrite pad, dry it thoroughly, spray with oil or PAM, and put in a 400F egg (or oven) for a while.

    It's easy. Knock any rust and dirt off with a wire brush if necessary.  Coat with oil (hell, spray pam on it).  Edible oil.  Then season by heating it up in your oven (or egg) until it hits around 450-500 F.  Pull it out, add a new coat of oil and it'll be black.
    This is my signature line just so you're not confused.  Love me or hate me, I am forum Marmite.
