Tim, where do you buy Chromax? I'm close to depleting my stash of QuickGlo and I'm looking for a substitute. I've tried Mothers Mag & Chrome Cleaner. It's good for polishing, but not quite abrasive enough for rubbing out scratches like one can do with QuickGlo. Anyone else know of a QuickGlo subsittute that will remove scratches? Is QuickGlo now gone forever?

Since it doesn't really fit me, I'm selling off the World Voyageur frame I picked up recently. It's a 23" frame, in orange, with a lot of nicks and scrapes in the paint. The good news is that the whole frame is chromed under the paint. The bad news is that there's some surface rust here and there. I did a modest bit of cleaning with Chromax (a good substitute for QuickGlo), and most of the rust cleared right up. I imagine someone with more patience and desire would be able to make it look a lot better. If I were to keep it, I'd probably just strip it to the chrome and be done with it.

How about $75 plus shipping? As I understand it, it was a 73-only model, and pretty nice, next in line to the Paramount. It's one of the early frames built by Panasonic, and seems well built. 4130 Chromoly tubiing throughout. More info can be found here:

Questions? Drop me a line. Too high a price? Make an offer. Pics? Sure, I'm going to take a few when I find the time.

Thanks!
