stainless steel cleaning

I have a 57 chevy and am looking for a good cleaner for the stainless steel panels and moldings. Any ideas?:

I've used WD40 and a superfine steel wool in the past. Though that was for chrome moldings, not stainless.

There's also a product called "Metal Polish" that is basically an abrasive paste, like toothpaste.

A product called Flitz, found in gunshops for use on stainless steel guns, also works on other stainless items. Whatever product you use be sure to use ONLY stainless steel brushes and stainless steel wool, if you use carbon steel brushes or wool to clean stainless, it will rust very quickly due to the carbon from the steel being deposited on the stainless.

If it is just fingerprints and dust, Windex and paper towels work fine
