    Is it aluminum? If so, get some rubbing compound and buff and polish her back to new, then clear coat it, to preserve shine. If chromed or annodized steel, good luck, might as well pick out a color you like. Just my 2cents worth.

    If you ain't hurt, you ain't playin' hard enough.

    I had a chrome tube grill in my 87 K5. dont know the brand, it was on it when i got it. anyway .. it was chrome and I used some cloth strips for polishing the spokes on a motorcycle wheel. Worked great. Took the grime and rust right off, left a really nice shine on it.

    By far the best metal polish that I have found is Mother's polish. I just sanded my aluminum door locks with 1500 grit sand paper and then used the metal polish. It's now a mirror reflection.
