    On that note, is Hot Rims Aluminum still available? I loved that stuff.

    They work great. I use them on my Borla cat back exhaust.

    There is no protection associated with any of these polishes.

    Medium Cut is perfectly safe on chrome, but keep away from the Heavy Cut when working on chrome as it's aggressive enough to potentially haze the chrome, and removal of that haze can be extremely difficult if not impossible.

    Now I'm REALLY excited!

    Thank you...

    Quite possibly, yes. Just stay away from the Heavy Cut on chrome as we don't recommend it for that surface. Heavy Cut is great at removing really nasty oxidation and scratches from bare aluminum, but there's too high a chance that it will haze or create very fine scratches in chrome. As you know, chrome is much harder than aluminum, and any haze or scratches you might create with a heavy cutting product will be very difficult to remove. Stick with the Finish Cut on chrome.
