The inside of the doors are pretty dirty, especially the bottom one.  Any tips on how to clean it before I refinish it?

Mine was very greasy - I used spray oven cleaner (low fume) and let it sit overnight (avoid or cover any painted items like the name plate or blue area by the dials) - I plan to treat the rust with Oxalic acid. The doors come off pretty easy and I would recommend you pull the door pins / bushings and clean and lube them - mine were so rusted I almost could not get them out. I you need info On how to get them off just let me know - again, really nice oven - dibs if you ever want to sell it  :-D

Thank you for the help.
I just finished cleaning the doors and trim.  Going to hit them with some 600 grit tomorrow, then start the process on the oven.

Be careful to only sand in the direction of the grain with a block - wet the sandpaper with any cooking oil (I used vegetable oil) just enough to keep it wet. If you have any questions I'm happy to help....

Ok, i bought food grade mineral oil.
Appreciate the tips. 

This is before and after, although i only cleaned it with Bar Keepers and only sanded on the edges with 400.

Nice - looks like new - BTW - my oven is not stainless on the inside so I did not want to use anything abrasive - I only sanded the stainless parts. I think the inside is aluminized steel. Is that what yours is or is the whole oven stainless including the inside?

Ya it looks like aluminum so I wont sand that part either.

I would like to get a little bit better finish.  Not sure what to use though.

Better finish on the stainless or aluminized steel?

My "old style" handle is chrome plated steel - I have it soaking in a tub of oxalic acid now - hope it does not eat the chrome off......

I don't know but I'll bet there is a way - if you just want it shinny maybe try some toothpaste in a tiny spot but I'm just guessing and I could be wrong - not sure how thick (or strong) the coating is but I bet it is not very thick so I would be very careful with it.
