'M' Special, water spotted chrome trimming?

Anyone know of a good, and safe way to clean water spot stains on the chrome trimming that goes around the windows on the 'M' Special?, Ive tried Mothers Chrome polish, no luck, So Im guesing I need a good aluminum/chrome cleaner paste?, or....?, What is the material anyways?, Chrome, polished aluminum?, ect...

Thanks much guys!,

ITS under a plastic coating,,,, it wont touch it,

This may sound weird but diapers are the best things when it comes to cleaning chrome. It's does not scratch the chrome finish. Get the unscented/powder free ones.

A lot of the cheap diapers are stitched with polyester threads, which can scratch cladded plastic chrome, or paint, so be careful when you buy. I just use a 100% cotten microfiber on everything so I never have to worry.

i have this tan/cream colored liquid and it works great for water spots,swirl marks etc...its called "Carnu-B" try ebay.I have tried it on a dark green car with tree sap and it did a pretty good job taking it off.i have not tried it on the chrome trimming on my windows{they still look new}.If not i can almost assure you a buff with professional buffing/polishing agent and a buffing/polishing machine would do the trick.you might have to take it to a professional body shop.the same process they use after they paint a car to take off the clear and shine up your car.is what you might need.i can get my car buffed for $50 but it might be more.depends where you go

its probably your best shot.i cant guarantee it.but the process is known to take out water marks,tree sap,scrapy sand,and clear up fogged yellow headlights etc...why not get the whole car buffed?and tell them to target the chrome trim specially.it should cost around $100.It depends where you go.im getting my entire car buffed at the shop as we speak.if done right with the right wax it should leave it like new.
