Top Tips For Restoring Chrome On Classic Cars
Investing in classic cars is a good idea these days as they can appreciate so much and you could find yourself with a lovely little nest egg later down the line. Of course, you do need to make sure you take care of the vehicle over time so that it doesn’t fall into a state of disrepair (which will obviously have an impact on how much it’s worth) – so here’s how to care for the chrome on your car and restore it if need be.
What you should do first is try out a mild approach to restoration so that you don’t do any further damage to the chrome. Start off by washing it with a pH-balanced car wash and see what effect this has. It might be that you’re able to achieve a brilliant shine quickly and if so, your next step should be to preserve this using a polish or wax protectant.
Using incredibly fine steel wool is perfect if you need to polish and clean your chrome, although you could also use bronze wool which is great because it is rust-resistant. Once you’ve given it the once over, use a high pressure hose to clean all the dirt and grime off, then blow the car with compressed air so that you know there’s no water left that could potentially rust the car.
Of course, it might be that the chrome needs to be replaced completely. If so, call chroming services like Chrome Plating UK. We’ll be able to help you ensure your classic car really stands the test of time.
