Polishing Maillard vintage pedals.
#1
I recently found a pair of maillard road pedals of vintage age and the question is, what is the best way to polish them or what to use. They are in good condition and I think they were not used much. Alloy and a little chroming. Thanks.

For polishing by hand Simichrome or Flitz both German products work Great. For deeper cleaning use them on a 0000 steel wool.

In USA we have a product that has been around for years, Never Dull its a can with saturated cotton, great cleaner light duty for all metals.

Polishing wheel with rouge is also great if you have one. If they dismantle for servicing its that much better.
Never Give Up!!!
