Been doing some more polishing. Need to figure out how to tackle the brake reservoir.

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.
