    I’ve been through multiple posts here and on other forums.  Tried the tinfoil variations.  And other polishing ideas.  Before I throw in the towel and take it down to metal and paint (like I did with the light buckets) any other ideas on filling pits and gouges?  From a distance the grill looks OK (and way better than it was to begin with) but close up…not so much.



    Before for perspective:

    Now (badges and ornament works in progress):

    No pictures, but my project looks the same.  Like you, I’d be happy to find a cure.

    Mine has some mild pitting and rust under the headlamp mount, as well as a wrinkled fin. Once I get the car through enhanced inspection, titled, and on the road, I’ll take the grill off the car, straighten the fin, then send it out to be re-chromed. While I’m at it, I’ll remove the crooked MG badge and put it back on straight. The previous owner hadn’t a clue how to measure, or even level by eye.  The marker lamps, headlamps, and mirrors are all crooked.
