    I think you will struggle to get them out with anything, not just the products you have.

    I agree,it's a fake plastic chrome and not a stronger metal chrome i think,so anything other than rubbing your finger over it will remove what plastic chrome is on there.

    Polished mine with MER car polish several times. Had the car 4 years, chrome not yet faded or come off with cleaning.

    It takes alot of rubbing down trust me! Its got a copper coating on the plastic, so its not a cheap spray job.
