How to Remove Surface Rust on Chrome
You can use light oil and fine steel wool to remove surface rust from chrome and steel.
- 00:16 - Bronze or brass wool works the best.
In this short video we’ll learn how to remove surface rust. This will work best on chrome and sometimes on bare steel. If your rust is really bad you may have to get the part sandblasted and re-chromed.
For this job you’ll need some light oil, a chunk of fine steel wool, and a rag.
Simply squirt some light oil on the rust you want to remove. Then scrub it a little bit with a chunk of steel wool and wipe it clean with a rag… and that’s it! Keep in mind that it will quickly rust again if exposed to water, so you’ll want to dry it off well after riding in the rain.
