In Reply to: Chrome trims at tops of door panels.... posted by Jonathan on September 25, 2001 at 19:43:30:

Mine were looking rather cruddy too, and I figured I would try 3M rubbing compound (I figured if I screwed them up I would just get new ones eventually) The 3M rubbing compound has enough particles in it to rub off that top clear coating. What is left is the shiny chrome strip that we want to see, but with very very very tiny abrasions. Not enough to know the difference, not enough to keep them from reflecting the sunlight well and looking turned out to be a good temporary fix until I can get around to refurbishing the entire interior.
