    Default Best to shine the chrome

    Just what it says on the tin, what's the best thing to shine the chrome bits on the car.

    To be fair, I'm not much of a polisher, it's too much like hard work
    But this weekend I washed my car and have polished it with Autoglym super resin stuff that you all seem to rate. It was getting dark when I finished so I'll have to wait til tomorrow to see the results. But all my chrome bits are pretty dull, and the polish didn't seem to make much odds.
    What should I use??

    Autosol metal polish, or Peek metal polish. Both will bring the chrome up a treat

    Have you tried using SRP on them? It is full of cleaners.
