I have been thinking about this.

I haven't repaired rusted piggy eyes myself, I had only replaced a pupil and fixed broken eyes in place.

I wonder if this might be useful?

I do know some people clean up BBE babies using WD40, blasting it is so it flushes the rust out.

Thanks pkw :) I have been eyeing the wd40 in the cupboard but haven't mustered up the courage to do it and see what happens yet. I will update if I do end up doing it. The eyes haven't yellowed yet but rust is certainly starting to show, the inside of her head however is completely clean

It'll be inside the eye socket then :( The blinky mechanism in a BBE has some metal parts, I am thinking it will be similar to the piggy ponies eye.

I understand why you are nervous, I would be as well.
