Brightening up old powder coat?

Putting a new scooter together. Frame up. Fresh paint on body work. All the brackets repainted. Aluminum clean. But the wheels...

They are 15 year old powder coat. Black. Not shiney anymore. They look more like flat black especialy with the fresh paint.

Any ideas on cleaning/getting some shine out of them other then taking them to Tim?

Mother's wheel polish ftw. It works great on powdercoating.
