one of the best chrome cleaners i've used is called NEV-R-DUL. Haven't seen anything work better than this. If you've tried it and are not satisfied then i guess it's time to rechrome.

I've had good results with MAAS. I got a tube at a swap meet once. I am not a fan of Mothers wadding. Just an opinion
I'm afraid your 'chrome' trim may be annodized aluminum. Ford began using it a lot in the 60s. If so, it won't shine again, no matter what you do, short of having it chromed or professionally polished to strip off the weathered annodize. If it looks dull and whiteish, that's the problem.

If it is really chrome, it should respond great to Mothers chrome polish or any of the ones suggested above.
