    Default Polishing metal trim below windows

    The chrome-like trim along the bottom of my windows and along my boot is looking tarnished and generally crappy. Anyone got any ideas for polising this? I love the chrome trim on the Vectra C but only when it looks like new...

    On my 03 vectra that trim under windows is rubbish

    It's like a laminated plastic strip with tin foil inside it, I had one side changed when I bought the car and it is now as bad as the bits they took off.

    I've never found a good way to clean it TBH

    mine looks good, apart from the two wee rear quarter windows, the chrome on those is very dull
