I just wipe the chrome with whatever I'm waxing/polishing the paint with. I never cared for metal polish, too much work, missed spots and residue left over. I do use it on a polish machine for small parts. Did you know that a new emblem is not expensive? I believe I remember they were $18.

Liquid chrome polish is fine but I find mothers cannuba wax to be very effective also. Apply as you would normally and wipe off with a soft towel to finish. (I find a soft bristle toothbrush is very good for removing dirt and polish residue from those places where the washing and drying towel doesnt reach).
