          Some good advice given. Try a small section first, gently with hardly any pressure, then work up the pressure. You will be surprised how tough it is. And as said, new grill is worst it can get. Or plastic dip.

            Looks like it's had wheel acid cleaner sprayed on it to me.

                I used a product called ‘Absolute Immense polish’ made by a Scottish detailing company, Absolute Valeting.
                Used it on the black door pillars too with a small drill attachment polishing pad from EBay. Came up a treat, like new I would say. A few minutes work on each one and it’s perfect again.

                  A cutting compound is usually good for things like that

                          Take the easy way out - plasticote or similar (I used Frost liquid vinyl on my B grille and it's great)
