In Colorado heading to Sturgis this year. We had to make a run for it. From a sever thunder storm with baseball size hail and 2 tornado's. We escaped that storm and ran in to another one. We got under a overpass. I drop my scooter the rain was so hard I could not see. I scratched up the chrome on the left forged highway bar. Not real bad, buy noticeable. I want to make the scratches less noticeable if possible.
The "other HD" Home Depot has been selling chrome paint for years. No, it won't be as good nor will it last but from 20 feet away whose going to know. Get the real chroming done over the winter when riding time is down.
The best results I have had on chrome is with plain old turtle chrome polish. They other thing that works well is something called never dull. It is a cotton wadding type stuff that has a chemical impregnated in it and will polish out stuff well.
After I retired I worked in a musical instrument repair shop. Worked in brass and learned a whole new trade. Polishing silver coded instruments we used a number of different polishing compounds. You had to be real careful the silver coding was real thin. I may be able to do what I want. The shop has changed owners. But I know everyone working there. I bet you they will let me use the machines and compounds I need. I'll take picture before and after, if I can set it all up.
NAB, for whatever it is worth, I just slid my Vegas down in gravel and scratch the pipes. It wasn't bad but could be seen. I used Mag polish ( it has more chemicals then chrome polish) and a Dremel tool with a buffing pad wheel. lot of pressure and time and the deep scratches came out enough that I am not going to due any more on them. Then I polished with chrome polish. Made me feel better and it looked almost new.

I live in BC and can get a big discount on my insurance if I have a collector mototrcyle. One of the stipulations is that the production run must be under 1500 units for the year. I am looking at a 2004 Arlen Ness Signature Series Vegas. I need to send the insurance company a link to an article...
