    The window trims? if they have gone dull then replace them. the clear coat has delaminated and water got under it causeing the chrome underneith to look pants. nothing you can do other than replace them with new ones. The cost isnt that much unless you need to do the rear quarters as they are not just strips its the whole surround.

    On the other hand you have nothing to loose you could try polishing, any paint polish as its a clear coat, plastic I think but I doubt it will sort the problem.
