I take 600 wet sand paper, then 1200 wet, and finaly 2000 wet. Then use a metal polish wad like eagle1. Just keep rubbing both rails for 2 minutes each then finaly buff with clean, dry white towel. Should damn near look chrome. It really does not take that long to do. If you spend over a half hour, I would be shocked.

Never Dull or Chrome polish and some 0000 steel wool. 5 minutes and they're shiny. Smile

Those would be the way to go if not for the aluminum rust on the rails. The way I decribe gets rid of the black pitting too. Wink
It was based on the pics.
