Any suggestions on where to send the SS trim that goes on Hood, Fenders, and Window Reveal for small ding removal and polishing?

For EVERYONE's info.....The Front and Rear Window "REVEAL" Trim on 70 Plus Camaros was ALUMINUM material that was then "Brite-Dip" Anodized......Once it becomes messed up in whatever way....the only way to fix it is to have anodizing removed with CORRECT acid, then polish trim and have new "Brite-Dip" anodizing reapplied......Depending upon how you use and store car you could just repolish and not Brite -Dip but the Aluminum will retarnish "over time" (???)....The moldings around hood,fenders,doors, and roof line on R/S and Z-21 Style Trim cars are made from STAINLESS STEEL and can much more easily be polished at home or on the car

If they didn't have the odd ding or two this would be a no-brainer...But they do!
So any suggestions who does good work for this need?

The lock pillar chrome pieces (the vertical ones at the rear of the window, against the body on style trim cars) seems to be a pot metal type that pits after time.
