    I wouldn't go for metal polish. Isn't the chrome plastic coated?

    yeah i think it is coated plastic, why i was wary of using even paint polish on it.

    Listen guys i swear by autoglym, I used to have a set off chrome wheels and used alloy wheel seal, its in a spray can and you can use it on your allos if you dont like it, it sprays a white mist which you just rub once to finish the job!!

    Definetly put some polish on mate, if it does`nt get u the right results use some polish with a bit of cut in it. It would be very hard to damage the chrome trim using polish

    dont know if its a plastic coating or a laquer finish, but wire wool is definately not the way to go.

    if it is a laquer, you could try a tcut for metallic cars.

    Hi Mad
    Thanks for the info...i will give it a go, i was also thinking of giving it a go with a polish mop, with the high speed it may clear the fogging....will post my results on here if succesful. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/book.gif
