    Its called Never Dull and its made by Eagle One. It comes in a silver can and it is completely badass. Follow the directions and you'll be amazed.

    I use a product called "Armashell" made by Kleen-Flo. It's a chrome cleaner/polish that you wipe on and rub off- works great!!! I'm not sure if it's available in the States, but I'm sure you could find something like it at WalMart or an auto store........

    Try Coca Cola and tin foil. Kinda weird but it works.

    I've always heard of cokes miracle rust removing properties. Are you just making a diaper out of the foil for the part to sit a bath of coke, or are you using it differently?

    Hmmm, interesting. Does it have to be Coke though? I'm more of a pepsi drinker so I don't have any Coke handy to try out...
