hmmm depends on the finish of the aluminum.

if your looking for a glossy mirror/chrome look then i would reccommend Mothers Billet for a weekly or monthly clean.... if your wanting a duller satin finish then use something a bit more abrasive.

Now if your trying to polish out a rougher piece to look brighter then there is process for that. As you can see your question is rather generalized for a straight answer.


I am in the business of metal finishing, plating, and polishing PM me for specifics of making your project a reality

you guys are fast!!! I currently use (and recommend) Mothers Billet polish on my frame and wheels, and I'm satisfied with the results. I have tried every polish i have come across, and I am just looking for something new to try. There is always something better out there right?!? Keep em coming guys, I'm all ears.

Talking

R.U.B. has a good polish that i am using currently to give my old bike a face lift! that is lookin like chrome almost! i wish i could take some before and after pics that ya'll could see the difference once i post them, but i don't know if i could capture the true look ----one of those things u got to see with ur own eyes ya know. some motorcycle shops carry this product, or you can usually catch the mobile truck at bike events around town. $10.00---and a little goes a llllllooooonnnnngggggg way!!
