Anyone else have this issue or am I the only one in the US of A.

well I tried a chrome polish/cleaner with steel wool and it did absolutely nothing.
Itd almost like its pitted. It feels like sand paper when you run your finger over it.

Could it be battery acid that wore the chrome off?

I cant think of what you would call that but this might sound stupid but its where the chrome kinda fades if that makes any sense. At least that what it looks like.

I don't believe that is from battery acid. The batteries are still the original and there not leaking. Besides that I find it hard to believe battery acid can even make it there from where the battery sits to where the drip is. Its like 10 inches away. I have it on both sides in the exact same spot.

I was thinking water in the marker and whatever chemical in the sealant they use to seal the lights.

03 Blue, What have you tried to use to get it clean?

I don't think there is anything you can do about it unless you would re-chrome it. I guess we have to live with it
