I did some welding on a Snapper deck for a fellow the other day and when he came to pic it up, he brought me these. First set I have ever had. A little rough, but we'll see what can be done.

Got out the LimeAway and a Brillo pad. Using just a light pressure and no water I got them looking better. Applied a coat of Mother's Carnuba Wax.

Here's a close up of the worst one.

You got them looking good Kenny. They would look out of place on all of my stuff though. Are you planning on giving Alice some bling?

Thanx CR!  I'm glad someone posted that so I didn't have to. :angel:

 

Those look great Kenny!

 

To remove rust from chrome without scratching, use aluminum foil with a little water for lubrication. 

Then just do like Billy "crash" Craddock said and  RUB IT IN,  RUB IT IN!  :thumbs:
