Seat Trim Polishing

Post by Richie »

So...I started the very easy bit of my change to black seats project this evening...
As you can hopefully see, the trim bits could do with a little renovation and with this in mind, what's the best method to use without being to aggressive and causing damage? There's a bit of tarnish on the upper support that can't be seen on the pic.

Those pieces are chrome. I would use chrome or metal polish. :)

Sorry to slightly hijack the thread, but my chrome trims on my Mark 111 are pitted, does anyone have any experience of getting them refurbished ? I would rather get them refurbished than replaced, but assume in the worst possible case I can get new ones?
Thanks

Rejen had some limited new old stock when i replaced two of my trims which i attempted to get rechromed. The rechroming process revealed that mine were two sections joined together which would have required extensive fettling to get right so i took the new route

Here I go again. If you decide to polish out the existing chrome a trick I use is a deck of playing cards. Take a playing card and slip between the chrome metal and the leather and go around the chrome to keep the polish off the leather. A product I like is Never Dull Majic Wadding. It does a good job cleaning it is not abrasive and does not leave white residue. RacerJoe

That's a really good tip Joe I'll remember that one for future use.
Thanks
