Bumperette position was created by wcoye
While my Westchester is at the beauty parlor I'm polishing up the bright work. Yesterday I noticed for the first time that one of my front bumperettes is closer to the towel bars than the other. What is the correct distance from the inside edge (where the towel bars attach) to the edge of the bumperette? And, while we're at it, What chrome polish do you prefer? I'm using Maas and Never Dull. They are working just fine but I'm alway open to suggestions

Bill I have the feeling that there were no specific dimensions used as they do vary in early Factory pictures. Regarding what sort of polish to use Mother's is the best as most other types contain an abrasive which removes chrome.
See the attached pictures which are from the Brockman Collection.

I like a chrome polish called Blue Magic and the nice part is I rarely ever have to polish the chrome as it keep so nicely via whatever is in the product.

I have always had good luck with Semichrome... It comes in a tube and works well for what I use it on. My original chrome instrument gauges had some mess on them. I used 0000 steel wool to clean it off with a Windex solution. Then used Semichrome and it brought back the original luster. Its very close to perfect.

Just remember polish has abrasive in it. That's why it is called polish. It trades courser scratches for finer ones.
