    Here’s a before and after pic of my factory original, I was able to get rid of 36 years of haze and dirt. There’s only one small spot where the chrome wore off. 49E03D2D-EB60-476A-9BEB-BCE373E916DB.png 50837A4D-44DC-408C-98A9-D647F9BAAA6B.jpeg

    You referring to the replating or were you able to polish it? The one on my truck has excellent chrome for 35 yrs old (but was from the NW where the sun only shines like once a decade). The one I have thats perfect (no dings or dents) was off a burb that was in storage under a mechanics lien for almost 20 yrs (and still saw more sun than the NW one - lol). But its a tad hazy. Was wondering if there was some way to try and shine it up.

    I cleaned and polished the original bumper with white polishing compound, then took it to my Baldor buffer/polisher..did not replate it
