Polishing Window Trim

Does anyone have a good way to polish the windshield trim on an OSB? I bought new trim when the truck was re-done, cuz it was all hazy lookin' and I couldn't get it to polish out. Well after spending good $ on new trim, it looked just as bad in about 2-3 months. Is there some kind of coating on it that needs to come off, or is there nothing I can do about it?

Re: Polishing Window Trim

I would think the mothers aluminum polish would work

I tried some good aluminum polish, and it didn't touch it.

Re: Polishing Window Trim

Not sure if they changed the trim with the OBS trucks, but when I had my 83 and fixed it up I polished all the trim with the Mothers Mag and Aluminum polish. Took a lot of work to get the original 20+ year old trim to shine but was nice when it was done.
