That may be true I think. But the mothers polish would still work putting a coat of protection on it. Better than nothing.JasonM said:I believe most of the chrome on the vehicle is plastic and fake. So, I don't think a standard chrome cleaner is going to help.
This are very soft and scratch/swirl very easily. The best thing to do, and only way to prevent them from looking bad, is to not to touch them and use good washing/drying techniques, mitts and towels.apples said:Those panels on mine are scratched to hell too. Only have had the car for a month. I've had mine at the shop twice (once for undercoating and once to replace on of these panels for dents), and when it's there, they wash it. Well, nice of them but they don't detail it the way I would. Each time I've picked it up, I've noticed that they're scratched more. Makes me livid.
