    • Trust me try the 0000 steel wool for the chrome I use it on all my chrome when it gets build up on it then polish or paint the elbows black it's an easy quick fix your looking for

    • Just trying to save you money bro

    • I've got to run by the hardware store tomorrow for a few stainless steel screws so I'll grab steel wool. Thanks for input.

    • Not a prob man I use the 0000 steel wool on my wheels alot almost make my spokes look polished

    • If the steel wool doesn't work, I use silver spray paint. I spray a bunch into a cup, then use a small kids water color type brush to paint them silver. You don't have to really brush it on. If you load the brush up with a lot, as soon as you touch the rusted metal piece, it will flow out on all over the metal without having to brush. It looks amazingly better.

    • The salt air and humidity is a bitch on a bike.

    • That chrome is long gone. I would skip steel wool and go straight to paint.

    • Dremmel tool with a wire wheel works wonders to

    • And I'd rough it up then go black myself jmo though good luck

    • What do you think about a light gray or silver paint?

    • I think either would be fine a big improvement from the rust.
