Can you polish plastic? I'd imagine just making it clean and giving it a good rubbing down would be the best you can do.

If you've got an old can in the garage, perhaps a few coats of spray lacquer might at some much needed gloss?

well i cleaned them up and gave some metal polish (autosol) a go and it works very well, it is plastic chrome and not plastic painted in chrome so may not be good for painted plastic

Brasso is always a good bet, it is a very mild abrasive and they use it to clean lenses of spectacles and also for taking scratches out of helicopter canopies.....and it cleaned the face of an old military Hamilton watch that I have most excellently....
