Chrome question

Just got my kit in to put my stacks on. I have had the stacks for about 4 months and just been sitting around. Can anyone recommend a good cleaner to them looking new again?

windex works well on chrome.

keep them waxed also when you wax your truck . keeps them shiny .

I use McGwires (sp) quick detailer at all the events I have chrome on show. Shines them up real good. Windex is good to use sometimes, but shouldn't be used all the time.

I agree, if it's just surface dirt you are removing. You know, like dust and dirt. Corrosion or tarnishing for lack of a better word can be corrected with a good Metal Polish (Chemical cut not an abrasive cut).

Should be able to wipe it on, wipe it off and the chrome will sparkle again. Good Luck.

Sorry, I meant to add this to the end of my last post.

You shouldn't use a metal polish all the time to clean it. Soup and water will do the trick most of the time. Wax definitely helps to keep it shining.
