Well, #0000 does absolutely NOTHING to chrome. Harsh chemicals now, there's a topic for discussion. I stand behind my suggestion. I have stripped and steel wooled several chrome bikes, not one of which experienced the rust "roaring back". It will rust again, because it's already pitted. Now, these pits, do you really want to introduce an acid into that equation? It will not only soak into the pores, but past that and under the chrome? Just my humble opinion of course. Use what you want, and I'll use what I want.,,,,BD
This bike was stripped of its dull scratched clearcoat, then cleaned up with #0000. It does not scratch chrome, period. End of story. You must be thinking of the super coarse steel wool? In case you have never bothered to look at it, #0000 it so soft it feels like a cotton ball..
