  • Body / Glass: Chorme Polish

    Is there any new products that can give chorme trim a new lease on life ?, or some old products that you forget to use over the years ?

    Wenol and Semichrome are the best two I've ever found.

        I have to agree Wenol, and Semi-chorme, are the best I have also found, I am working on my brand X project and it has a lot of stainless trim , and it's very time consumeing , I have used a 3M rubbing compound with a a hi-speed buffer and it works, but you are limited to certain area's , and depends on paint condition.

          Eagle 1 Never Dull is great for your stainless. Try 0000 steel wool along with WD 40 04 oil on bumpers and potmetal. Wipe thoroughly afterwards.. Follow this with Eagle 1 Never Dull then the paste wax of your choice. For future maintenance use Never Dull then wax. I ain't Lion. jimmijim

            Just a small correction in spelling, in case anyone is ordering any online:
            It's SIMICHROME, as in "similar to chrome". Great stuff.



            I'm usually not picky about spelling, but if anyone's searching for it online they should get the best results and price. You can get it at any motorcycle shop and many auto stores.

              What should I expect to pay for rechroming pot metal? Most of mine is good but there are a few pieces (ex. drivers mirror) that are pretty well pitted.

              Thanks,
              David

                David, prices are all over the place for pot metal restoration. Here is an earlier post--

                  I do not know what your car is, but there are reproduction exterior mirrors for most postWar models that would be much cheaper than restoring a "well pitted" original.
