1975 300D
Cloudy chrome(?)

The chrome (or what Iím assuming is chrome) trim on my 300D is cloudy and needs to be sorted. What are my options for restoring shine aside from replacing the trim? Thanks in advance

Some of the bright work is chrome, some is stainless steel. For either, I would start with metal polish. If that fails , you could try some fine steel wool, although that is an option of later resort, as it can damage it. If it does not polish, I am thinking the cloudiness is actually because the chrome has deteriorated. If so, it would require rechroming- or replacing.
