My usual vinegar wipe down does not remove all the spots from the chrome emblems on the outside of the boat. I was wondering what everyone is using to clean and then polish these areas

Thanks
Preston

chrome is chrome regardless of what it's on. Just get a good chrome cleaner/polish.

preston, you should be safe with just about any metal polish that works on stainless. If i am not mistaken, your malibu emblems are stainless.

any one correct me if i am wrong.

There shouldn't be any "chrome" on a well-built boat - all stainless or aluminum. I like Nevr-dull and Flitz as far as polishes.

I'm pretty sure the malibu emblems are chromed billet aluminum?

never dull is an excellent product and it does not drip onto other parts of the boat since it is in a wadded form--also works good on stainless and polished material

Thanks for all the ideas. If anyone has any more I would love to here them. Does anyone know if those spray foam polishes (the ones for rims) are safe to use on what I now believe to be polished stainless steel?

Thanks
Preston
