Does anyone know how to remove what appears to be oxidation on the chrome around the windows. I tried cleaning it with chrome cleaner and it doesn't work.

www.detailersclub.com has great tips for this. I joined up over there the detail forum over there is very knowledgable.

fyi- chrome cleaner doestn work cause the trim is not true chrome. the trim is plasti-chrome. 3M rubbing compound (medium or light) would work better.

Does anyone have a good solution for this? My chrome is becoming oxidized (looks hazy, but seems as though it could rub off)
Any good kits/ experiences?
