How to save crusty chrome on an intricate grill?

I acquired this amazing original 34 Chevy Master grill..all 3 pieces that have been hiding in an old hot rodders attic since the late 50's. If your familiar with these the intricate grill work has thicker vertical strips top to bottom and then finer horizontal shaped strips that run horizontal molded onto the backside of the vertical ribs. Its fine and tight spacing...less than a quarter inch between each horizontal ribs. The entire grill is chromed. It would be almost impossible to get something down between the ribs to clean the rust and crust off those horizontal strips. At least with any control. Is there some kind of chemical dip that removes this corrosion without damaging the steel or chrome plate? I've cleaned enough to see that the chrome is intact...just not sure which way to go with this.
