    Default Removing small scratches from Chrome

    On my custom bike, I have a few chrome parts (such as the speedometer housing, transmission end cover, and handlebars) that are chrome and it appears to be very good quality chrome. However, I have a few small scratches in various places in the chrome, most are not very deep. I have tried using a chrome polish and rubbing with a soft cloth, but they persist. Is this a lost cause or is there any way to remove scratches from chrome with out having to re-chrome?

    Try polishing with a Spiral Sewn Cotton buffing wheelicon and a white compoundicon.

    We sell a kit that has 4\" wheels ideal for mounting on an electric drill.

    Not if you use the right compoundicon.

    The white compoundicon and blue compoundicon are made to polish chrome and other hard metals like nickelicon.

    hi
    I am interested in your products for removing very minute scratches from chrome (no miracles expected) but the link in this thread to them no longer exists (7/26/0

    Could you please provide a url that would get me to both the compoundicon and buffing wheelicon most appropriate for attempting scratch removal??

    thank you!
