What are the steps in polishing metals? What all do you use to get them to a nice shine? Do you use sand paper or just some rubbing compound or what? Hit me up and let me know. Thanks in advance.

yes, but if they are steel, they would look shitty after a week..
part of the chrome plating process is polishing the metal...

You said they would look shitty in a week, is that because of them rusting amd if so then coulnd't I just spray some sort of clear over them?

A final polishing with Never Dull will bring on a shine, but then you must seal it. Zoops makes a sealer for polished surfaces that is supposed to work real well.
