Best way to remove very fine scratches in chrome windshield frame


Jedi Knight

Replaced the glass in my Healey windshield last weekend and apparently got some very fine scratches ( can see but cannot feel them) in the chrome on the actual frame. Any suggestions on best way to polish these out ? Posted this on the Healey area too and got a suggestion for Mother's Chrome polish which I will try but what about jewelers rouge and a polishing buff used on a drill ? Don't want to make them worse but figure there must be some way to polish them out.

I'd stick with the Mothers, and not too much rubbing with that. The chrome is quite thin (.00001) and it' s quite easy to buff through. The spot where you've polished will look dull after you've gone through the chrome to the thicker nickel layer under it. Tom

Thanks Tom, I'll follow your advice along with the same from the Healey post too ! Last thing I want to do is make it worse as right now barely noticeable.
