Re: Polish Chrome Window and Door Trim ?

I've used Mothers Chrome polish on the plastic chrome on my wife's 65th anniversary WK with a lot of good results...then top it with a good wax. If it's clearcoated, I'd stick with a polish formulated for paint...like Meguiars Ultimate Polish. I use it on the chrome door moldings all the time.

Re: Polish Chrome Window and Door Trim ?

If you're unsure, use ultimate polish. It's clearcoat safe. Chrome polish is not. Our WK doesn't have chrome window trim so I can't tell ya for sure. Hopefully another WK owner can chime in here.
