    I think he posted a picture of a motorcycle chrome.
    If you can locate exactly who that is, it would be fantastic...

    ^^^That would be me! It was/is a beta test product. It still has not been released. It did clean the chrome up extremely well, however it did not `correct` or remove the swirls/scratches in chrome.

    Thanks for the info. The whole "correcting marring on chrome" thing apparently remains the same...ya just can`t do it.

    (But the thought occurs that there are some *VERY* hard steels that guys polish to absolute perfection..is the Chromium harder than those?)

    It`d take such fine-yet-aggressive abrasives...I just can`t imagine anything that`d both do the correction and still finish out OK, but I`m sure no expert. Wonder what Cerium Oxide Glass Polish would do...

    It did a good enough job for me to pull the trigger. Better results than anything I have ever tried.
    Check out the improvement for yourself.

    I would not want to use real Cerium Oxide; I think it`s really toxic to breathe it.. Yes, you can mix it into a slurry, and then perhaps, it`s less dangerous??

    I wonder what those sticks of product made for polishing metals would do?? There are a few grits of them, one I remember is Tripoli, another - Red Rouge.. There are more.. You just need something fast and slow or a variable air die grinder or something like that and a bunch of cotton cones, wheels, different sizes, and grits or whatever you call cotton polishing products.. I should go look at Eastwood, I think they sell that stuff.. Here https://www.eastwood.com/eastwood-bu...compounds.html

    Re: Removing Spider Webbing From Chrome?

    Rouges will polish something like stainless steel ( watchmakers polish up watch cases all the time with it)but I’m not sure about chrome. My concern is that the layer of chrome might be too thin.
    Treat it like it`s the only one in the world.

    I meant, it`s good enough for me to want to buy it if it were available.

    Re: Removing Spider Webbing From Chrome?

    I didn`t find anything at Caswell, and they`re kinda my go-to for such stuff (rather than Eastwood in this case).

    While some Stainless is pretty hard, I wouldn`t expect it to be as hard as chrome. I`ve never had anything stainless that was as hard as some NON-stainless steels (even a Rockwell in the mid-60s is kinda unusual for stainless...isn`t it? I know things change..) can be and I wouldn`t expect some mix of chromium and [anything] to be as hard as straight chrome plating.

    And/but as Bill D pointed out, most chrome is pretty thin so I dunno about using a progression of products..
