Chrome wheel and stainless fender polishing

Anyone have any tips to get the shine back on my stainless fenders on my trailer, and also get some shine out of the chrome wheels? Previous owner didn't do much to maintain the luster, and not sure what to use to fix it up. Would a mothers ball work well for both? Can I do the 00 ultra fine steel wire pads with some windex trick on the stainless fenders without hurting them? Not sure where to start on that...

This is the very best metal polish I have ever used, and I have polished a lot of wheels in my life. http://intimidatorpolish.com/about_intimidator.html

This is another great wheel polisher

I don't but I probably should. I picked up a bottle one time at a truck stop and I couldn't believe how well it worked. It does a heck of a job on aluminum too. Make the pylon look like chrome.

Doesn't look like any of the retailers for the intimidator are close to me either. Bummer. I'll try the ball and see how that works, then whore out Pete's courier services if it doesn't give me the correct results
