Hello guys
i wanted to know if anyone had any suggestions on this.
The trim piece that surrounds the vent window was in bad shape and thinking it was stainless steel i started polishing it.

After a bit a yellowish/brass finish started showing up. I wanted to know if it needs to be re coated by a shop or maybe since its a small piece I could fint an aluminum type paint i can apply.
thank you have a safe weekend

Antonio,

I do believe that part is chrome plated steel and not stainless steel. It appears that you're polishing through the nickel and down to the brass or copper.

I think it's time to locate your favorite plating shop. Good luck.
