Long time lurker - first post. I ride a recently immaculate '89 BMW R80. Recently, I melted my cover on to the header pipes (the part of the exhaust that comes out of the engine at the front - headers right?). So I cleaned them off and decided the chrome could do with a polish, as it was bluing / becoming very dull. I used Brasso. In retrospect, this appears to have been a mistake as it seems I have taken some protective coating off the chrome and they now have a light, but growing, covering of rust - which they never had before. So my question to you guys is... what can I do about this? Can I get the rust off and polish the chrome back up and coat it with something to protect it? Or is it buggered?
