What is  considered state of the art 
for cleanup, that will NOT be destructive to  the old wiring, heater 
etc. I'm thinking more of the  sovent/brush/rag approach, rather than steam 
cleaning, for example. 

In the book "Secrets of the Show Cars" they recommend hot water and DAWN  
dish washing detergent.  Apply FULL strength to the grease.  Carefully  brush 
away as the DAWN dissolves the grease.  With a heavy buildup you may  do it two 
or three times.  When you get to an area where there is a label,  such as on 
the brake fluid... DO NOT USE A BRUSH, use a soft cloth and even more  warm 
water and DAWN...
Hope this helps.  It has worked for me.
