Good idea on the bronze wool but I have done exactly this same treatment on my VS with sensational results. Where it really made a hugedifference was on the bumber gards which were a mess and the only popolish that ever had a chance to shine them up was Rusty's secret polish he sends me from time to time. Both my windshielsdframe and bumper guards look like new with a shine almost as bright as chrome plating.
It was scary to apply the sandpaper to the windshield frame but I had used this process before on my airplane's aluminum nose cone with great results.
Ted said to sit back and enjoy the refurbished parts and that's exactly right because it truly is completelt refurbished.
