Re: Polishing the chrome
I use Auto Glym super resin wax, or luster lace.
Do not use an abrasive polish as it will cloud and scratch the chrome. You can wax chrome with no ill effects whatsoever. Try some pledge on it, you'll be surprised at the results.

The polish can perform wonders and boost the look of marbled floors. Because it is extremely porous, these people get scratched very easily by white vinegar, fruit, tomato juice or some kind of other activities which contain acids. As well as certain kinds of marble that will get etched by drinking water.
Therefore marble polishing should be completed with the best materials.
With todays advanced waxes and silicons it is easy to find a protective that does both.But if you would feel better a good wax such as Macguires ora siicon based polish would be fine.Remember the idea is to provide the covering with the regular maintenance regularly;that way you provide the care that any finish needs.
Instead of toothpaste (although it will leave TV set minty fresh) go to your local glass shop. You know the place; where they replace windshields and sell windows and mirrors. They will have a powder polish that you can use and might only charge you a small fee for a small amount. You might find it at a local jeweler as well. Ask for "jewelers rouge" or "polishing rouge". Mix it one part to one part water and one part glycerin and use the polishing wheel on a roto-tool (Dremel).
Another product to try is an automotive polishing compound such as Dupont 7.
Of course all of this is assuming that this is a glass screen and not a plastic screen on a projection TV. Remember that if the scratch is too deep no amount of polishing will remove it...
you'll need some steel wool, use fine if the rust is not bad. No need to scratch the metal too hard for nothing. Second you'll need some metal polish to lubricate, and polish while you rub with the steel wool. Liquid polish works better.. you'll need a clean rag to buff out everything after you've removed the rust.
Rub the metal-polish-loaded steel wool on the part until you see the brown rust pits vanish. Don't do a circular motion, go in a back-and-forth motion instead to match the length of the part. Circular scratches will show even if they are very small. Once you've made all the rusty spots go away, take your polishing rag, a clean cotton t-shirt can do the job, and buff the piece until you are happy with the result. You can always finish with a regular application of metal polish without the steel wool after you're done.
I would not recommend trying to polish it. It is "chrome plated" plastic. There is a very thin delicate layer of this chroming on the plastic part. Even gentle polishing, which wouldn't remove all of the scratches, could possibly remove the chrome down to the plastic. I would hold them to the coals and make them buy a new piece. If you are worried about the detailers installing it correctly, insist they pay the dealer to install it.
