    I think you will find the only remedy is to replace as water gets under the laquer and is impossible to remove

    I use Peek polish (the squeezy tube version) because it's designed for chromed plastic as well as chromed metal. Halfords used to see it, not sure if they still do.

    It brings up my car's chrome like new removing the water stains, weathering, and many of the scratches as well as shining it really well, although - as pointed out above - it probably won't help with anything that's got in under the chrome.

    The only thing that removed rusty coloured marks left behind by my 'vectra' and 'v6' badge on my back strip was t-cut
