Cleaning minor Chrome
 
Can anyone recommend a tool attachment for a drill that can clean chrome kind of like steel wool?

I would try a buffing wheel for a drill and some polishing compound, I would think anything more aggressive would cause to bigga scratches
What are you working on?

Well I was just down at the Pomona swap meet. Which is a 2300 mile round trip for me. Anyway I picked up a old Schwinn chopper style bicycle. I've kind of been fascinated with these things for a long time and I thought about building one to put in the back of my pickup when I go to cruisings and stuff. I have a 67 Chevy short fleet side. The bikes got little bits of rust and I didn't know if there was anything easier than just steel wool or an SOS pad
