    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.

    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.

    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.
