Non abrasive chrome polish

Hi All


I've got a 1970 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow to valet next week and on that vehicle there is a considerable amount of chrome to polish up.
However - even though this car has had some work on it since new, I know the chrome will have been polished before.

That said - I want to get these areas looking as good as possible as it'll be used as a wedding car throughout the Summer

What are the recommendations for this?

Thanks
Seb

Any non abrasive paint cleanser will also clean chrome. One polish I like to use is Poorboys pro polish.

I'd simply go with https://www.amazon.co.uk/Autosol-Met.../dp/B003XJ1ODM for real, metal chrome (i.e. not "chrome paint" on plastic etc). It's a perfect old classic.

How about using something like Goddards Silver Polishing Foam ?

I have used Nevr-Dull to very good effect. German car mags rave about it. There are no abrasive particles in it but gives as good a shine as any polish I have ever used.

It is obtainable in the UK and in Europe, as I have done so in both (last time at a petrol station on the autobahn) but I can't for the life of me remember where in the UK.

If you have time, this chap on German eBay has it (3 pots for £22 plus postage):

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/3-Nevr-Du...19.m1438.l2649

I've bought from here in the past with no problem.

NevrDull is quite nice, as it comes with its own cotton wool, soaked. Makes the use fairly easy. But i can really also recommend Autosol, which is just a perfect product and not too expensive.

Serious Performance Metal Polish is pretty mild, which is just what's needed here.

I'd suggest applying something like FK1000P or even Glare Pro Polish afterwards to seal it and keep it looking good.
