If done right, you can't tell the difference. What are you going to polish?

If you want it to look like chrome, you'll need to do more than that. Start with looking up some metal polishing videos on youtube. Search for "polishing metal" or "steel tube finishing". I've posted this video in another thread. You're probably not interested in grinding down the welds, so ignore that part. And I have no idea where you can get one of those machines, but it shows that just putting some Mother's Mag won't achieve what you want.

Mothers mag is for aluminum if you want chrome, on steal it will just give you a shiny raw
