I was given a purple degreaser for under my hood cleaning - Nobody warned me about the effects on high polished chrome/aluminum aftermarket parts (like my CAI and struts etc).

It was in a refillable container - so I didnt have the option of reading any warning labels etc.

Now the mirror like shine is a dull whitish hazy tarnished look. Which meguiar's product do I use to restore/polish them back to their original look?

HELP.

Hi BeachDude,

As this is your first post, Welcome to Meguiar's Online! :wavey

Sorry to hear of the mishap... to remove the staining effect and restore a brilliance, try using our new NXT Generation™ All Metal Polysh (http://meguiars.com/estore/product_detailpage.cfm?product=NXT-Generation™-All-Metal-Polysh&sku=G-130)

This metal polish works awesome and leaves behind an anti-corrosive agent to help prevent and slow down corrosion, oxidation and deterioration.

Easy to use, works great.
