    Just got back from getting it washed, and I'm not sure if they did it or not. (Most likely they did) Was thinking of wrapping them anyways....

    That will be tough one. Much harder than pulling a scratch out of paint. Take it very slowly. It could take an hour or so of buffing. Not sure I agree with Neverdull. That is quite abrasive. I used to use on my boat with "real" chrome back in the day. Tesla handles are not the good old chrome, as far as I know. So they are softer.

    Slow and steady is my rule for finishes.

    Wrap them! Chrome is the worst.

    Ouch, sorry...Maybe I should get my entire car wrapped. I have two scratches under my handles that need to be buffed out.
