I was just told that these were stainless steel. Is that correct? If so, what is the best way to make them look shiny and new?

This thread will give you a start. Look specifically in post #25. Franjo does excellect work. He gives a bit of explanation in post #24. Somewhere on the BB, Franjo give a more detailed description of his techniques IIRC, but couldn't find the thread. It might be worth a more detailed search.

Good information. I will get them done before the car gets painted next July. Thank goodness they're not chrome.

How shiny were these SS bumpers when new? I've seen examples that are clearly over-restored but still look good. If going for the OEM look, when does one stop polishing?

I use buffing wheels on my bench grinder along with various rouges. The hardest part is getting a uniform polished surface and also having the patience to take the surface down in stages. It's very easy if you're patient.
