How can I remove scratches from chrome plated steel? I couldn't find an answer for this, probably because it's not possible.

I'm looking for a way to remove some very minor scratches from my chrome plated steel tail pipes that I can do myself. I laid it down once. :(

The scratches are all together in one area, nothing real deep. Hair line thickness probably, all within the area of say 2x3 inches.

Here's a pic of the bike, the scratches are so small you can barely see them on the picture. But they are right there at the end.

Brasso polish. Smells like hell, but it buffs* anything. *May require a ton of elbow grease depending on the scratches.

Simichrome. Accept no substitutes.

I've used Blue Magic metal polish to good effect on pipes. It's probably all the same stuff; your results depend on how much elbow grease you apply.
