PostSubject: Cleaning Chrome & Rust   Cleaning Chrome & Rust EmptyTue Nov 22, 2011 7:00 pm

What to use for cleaning chrome & rust, here is mine but anyone else knows other ways then go ahead and post it.

I have been using Turtle Wax Chrome Polish & rust remover sold at Walmart for $1.98 on my chrome bicycle parts, I shake the bottle well then then there is polish in the cap a put my finger in it then spread over a small area at a time then I use a brass brush as hard yet light as I can.

Here are Before & After pics.

After, some spots can not be helped because the chrome is gone & pitted.

I have heard Wood bleach in a spoonfull or whatever it was that I can't remember with a few gallons of water dip it in for 24 hours or whatever depending how bad it is.

Mothers is good but I got some at a car show in a tube years ago and it work wonders arond Mothers. Now that is on aluminum, but on my paint chrome and glass I use Race Glaze It works wonders and it is easy to use. You can put it on and wipe it right back off or you can leave it on a while and wipe it off, But I don't know what if you polished it in the sun, never polish in the sun. Smile

I don't use Mothers but I don't know if it helps get rid of rust, Mothers had a show on tv and everything on it was nothing but Ch++y's and no other car makes.

It works good but it's not the best on the real hard rust chips.

I know people that used wood bleach with a lot of water for rusty chrome on bicycles where there is areas that no brush can get to like on Spaceliner bicycles have as you can tell in the pics below.

Try the thinnest steel wool you can get, I use this on guitars that are rusted. Rub it off with a bit of water then polish.

I am going to try some of the turtle wax Chrome and rust remover on my mirrors this week. They are in pretty good shape but it will be interesting to see what it does for them.
