Bringing Chrome to life


In learning the ropes as a new antique auto owner, I'm wondering how to bring crome back to life. most of it is in good shape, but in some areas there's wipeable dirt, or worse, some rust pitting starting. Any products or processes or old-fashioned tricks anyone can lend? This isn't just for bumper-like surfaces, but for wire spokes too...a real tedious effort!
Thanks in advance!

Bringing Chrome to life


You can clean off most dirt and light rust by using a piece of fine wool and lightly rubbing the surface. I like to use SOS pads, which also provides a soap when soaked with water. When finished, rinse off the soap, and wait until it dries then go over it with your favorite chrome polish. For polish, I like to use Wenol.
