lol that seems catchy godzander! t-cut is the main stream G3, i found auto glym super resin polish is good to protect new chrome, you can just wipe bugs off the chrome then!

i've used pretty much everything, autosol is the best for polishing and getting rid of imperfections, as for T cut, i dont believe a recommended use is for chrome? but i may be wrong, i'd just go for autosol. its the tried and tested favourite, its only about a fiver from halfords, unfortunatley i work there

Just remember not to polish it too much if its real chrome, because you will wear through the chrome plating into the base metal, and then it needs either re-dipping in chrome or replacing, which is probably cheaper unless you know someone!
