I would try some of the suggestions already offered. Pledge used to make a product specifically formulated for electronics, but I don't know if it is still available. I don't see it in their current product listing.
If you don't get the desired results with the cleaners noted, I would be inclined to try pure carnauba wax used for cars. Apply a thin coat on the top of the cover, let it dry and buff with a microfiber cloth. Remove the cover before doing this as you don't want dried wax residue going through the vent holes to the interior of the amp. It may give more of a shine to the surface than before.
Others can weigh in as to whether there could be any detrimental effects of using this, but it in its pure form the carnauba wax does not contain other chemicals. The carnauba wax can be removed with a solution of regular liquid dishwashing detergent if need be.
C'mon it's a cheap stamped tin box cover,
likely (clearly?) with poorly applied paint.
Yeahh it can be annoying.
But It's the sound that actually matters.
Not the condition of the tin lids' paintwork.
IF it really annoys? a Rattle can respray is simple enough to DIY...
...you can go in that direction if all else fails. In the OP's case easier solutions may work.
I had a situation a few years ago when I had a pre-amp I was not using stored in a closet that got some gouging scratches on top of the cover that went down to the bare metal. With some Bondo and sandpaper I was able to get rid of the scratches. I was very lucky to have on hand a can of spray paint that exactly matched the original finish. A few careful coats of paint later you could not tell that it was repainted.
Dig-Dig-Dig-Dig, We have a winner.
When all else fails get out the rattle can.
