Solution to Hazy Exterior Chrome Trim

Ladies and Gentlemen:
I want to announce that through extensive research, i have succeeded in finding a cure to the hideous hazing of the exterior chrome trim that surrounds most of our windows.




Thanks accepted, Paypal Donations preferred.

I'd love to see some before and after pics. I ended up just having the trim vinyled matte black but I'm curious.

+1 we need before/after pics and more testimonials. What made you think of trying Plast-X? I think some people tried Scratch-X with no positive results. I would think Scratch-X is more abrasive than Plast-X, right? So it doesn't make sense.

FWIW, regular polish (CC polish, not metal polish) and a RO worked for me. But if Plast-X works, I'll get some. Easier to use.

Any All in One product like Klasse or Optimum Poli-Seal work as well and they also put a nice coat of protection on as well. With the PlasticX you'll need to put a sealant or wax on them to keep them looking good.

Please pass on any donations you receive to me! Thanks

Got the same thing on the rear section only. Dealing is looking at it next week. I've tried Klasse AIO with no improvement.

Nice, our 750i with 40k miles has this hazing/oxidization problem - just noticed it today actually while I was out washing/waxing it. I tried come Mothers Chrome Polish but it did absolutely nothing. Looking forward to seeing some before/after shots from you guys on how well these products fix it.
