Never Dull works great. I use this on our snowmobiles and it cleans up the aluminum like it is chrome. It comes in a small can, all you do is pull a small wad off and polish it just like putting wax on. As it starts to work the aluminum turns black. Once it dries just use a soft cotton cloth and polish it like chrome.

Stuff works great. They have a pad that goes on a drill and works great. Made out of the the stuff car washes use. Works great on stainless and plastic lens also. If the surface is real bad you can ultra fine sand it first or use an acid. Alcoa sells stuff @ the big truck stops that works good too.

If it is real bad then wet sand it and then polish it.

I've always used Flitz until I tried Mothers new "Billet" Polish on my wheels. It took off the water spots and shine them up that they look chrome. I was pretty amazed at the difference.

Zoop sealer does work very well, but it's alot of work to apply it and it's pretty expensive. It will last all season.

I used Mothers on a 20 year old aluminum boat that was oxidized badly and it looked like new afterwards.
