After going through this section, i realize many have not properly understood the section. I am going to try to fill it with correct material. Here is a shorter writeup.
I had many cleanliness issues with my truck when i got it. One of which was that all the chrome was not shiny. I was at autozone and noticed turtlewax chrome polish, which i was unaware of.
Before and after:
My wheels have both aluminum and chrome, and i removed the chrome part. I got two microfiber towels, one to scrub/rub it on with, and the other to wipe it off. You have to time the wipe off correctly, you cant let it dry, and too little time it does nothing.
