Mike, I had a really good friend that did boat upholstery. He had a 26' van with his sewing machine in it and a generator. He actually went to the marina's and made window curtains "on site." He told me they made brass wool for marine use that was better to use on chrome. The residue that gets left in the pits will not rust which makes it last longer with out turning brown again.

I have not had personal experience using it but it made sense to me.

absolutely,Brass or bronze wool is best.because if you've ever used steel wool to get overspray off a windshield you would see right off how it disintigrates ,a slight breeze and its on your paint job ,add some moisture,and you have little tiny rust spots all over your paint...so yes ,a brass or bronze wool is best but hard to find..... since you need water with the brillo pads ,as the wool disintgrates it wont blow over the cars paint but a dry steel wool holly molly that stuff gets everywhere
