How deep are the scratches? I use 0000 steel wool to polish out the small ones.

Doit! #0000 is so fine all it does is polish, but if you're worried, then try never dull, or some aluminum polish on it. I used to use Eagle1 aluminum polish on my chrome before a show, to make it extra sparkly.

Then I guess you need to step up to something a little more aggressive.
