Polished headlight brow?

I am a fan of the headlight brow, believe it or not, but I'd like to have it polished. I don't need ultra shine/mirror but I'd like it to at least reflect.

I tried some Never Dull and Mother's, but I just ended up with a clean looking dull shine. I'm assuming I'll have to switch to a polishing compound or sandpaper. Anybody been able to get theirs to really shine up?

Later,
Chrome...

I'm sure it does. My brow isn't chrome, it looks like aluminum. Is the brow available in chrome?

So no year info so here's my two cents!

You can by a chrome plated brow cover as I did for the OL '02 sporty (and my FXDL) or you can take the headlight assembly off and take it to the polishing wheel and make it shine like chrome.

Mine is actually an '03 FXD. If there is a chrome one available, I'll take a look for it.

Thanks.

You can get a chrome dickie for it on Ebay. I had one and then had it powder coated to match the rest of my tins.

Here you go though, $20 on fleabay.
