Chrome Polish: What's your favorite?

Postby dvan72 » Wed Apr 08, 2015 11:20 pm

Well springtime for me means detailing my Harley. I am on a quest to find the best chrome polish. I usually dread this process of polishing until I get out there and start polishing. I very much like the tried and true Mothers and never dull. I had some stuff once called hog snot that did a great job but I can't seem to find it. So what did you guys use?

My Roadster has so much chrome on it I dread polishing it. I use "Purple Metal Polish" on it. Kind of pricey and hard to find, but it works great!
