    When I had my 69 30 years ago I used Eagle One wire wheel cleaning kit. It came with a spray acid and neutralizer.

    I took out the complete grille and sat on the couch with it watching football and polishing every bit with some metal polisher and a cloth...

    Don't forget to put some wax on it after you polished it. Otherwise you will end up with water stains again with the first rain or wash.

    I just talked our Rustoleum rep and ordered it for the store after seeing Dullahan's post. I will be our first customer when it arrives!
