Repeat this process till you're happy with the result. If you're lucky you have no chrome loss, no rust, and no scratches - in that case you can just take a cloth, and metal polish, and shine it right up. If there are no scratches in the chrome, be sure to use only a dry, clean cloth & metal polish.
If there is an oxidized build up you will need to polish with fine steel wool & polish first, followed by polishing with the cloth.
We are working with a Zassenhaus Zenzi in this restoration.Use increasingly fine grades of sand paper - you can spend as much time on this aspect as your heart desires - it will only get smoother, and cleaner (always sand WITH the grain). Finish it with clear lacquer (we use spray lacquer from the hardware store - if you're talented you can use a brush!) Be sure to mask the parts that you want to protect from the lacquer. With spray lacquer a few thin coats is preferable to attempting one thick coat of finish.Be sure to watch out for drips (if you do get drips you can rub them out when the lacquer is dry).When the finish is dry & hard, rub it down with fine steel wool, then give it another very thin coat.
