    Default Chrome exhaust trim cleaning

    Hello whats the best way to get chrome exhaust trim clean, I have tried the carplan chrome cleaner but you have to rub really hard to shift whatever it is.

    Put one of the polishing bits on it and it would remove all the cack off the tip! Using a chrome polish
