any ideas on how to restore chromed areas? it doesn't have to look perfect.
i saw this stuff the other day called cold galvanizing spray. it's supposed to put a zinc coating on pipes. so i sanded down my handle bar and sprayed this stuff on.
it looked kinda dull as seen in the right side of the bottom pic. i rubbed it with a soft cloth until it shined, then i waxed it (left side of bottom). looks ok. compared it to the silver painted or galvanized bar mount (top of picture).
if you try this stuff, be sure to let it dry a while (overnight) as it comes off easily until the next day.
overall recults were ok. nothing spectacular, but not to be ashamed of either. i still have more chromed parts that are all rusted (fork, rims, fenders, etc.). any ideas on how to better restore those parts?
on the ones that aren't too badly rusted, i was thinking of rubbing them down really well, cleaning, then waxing them.
silver spray paint might look slightly better, but i don't think it will protect as well as the zinc.
