Detailing Aluminum Engines and Parts
I'm wondering how you folks are detailing aluminum parts if you are so inclined to do so. My entire engine and attached components and most suspension parts and a few chassis members are cast aluminum and they are getting quite oxidised as aluminum is wont to do. I'm not talking tarnish-like, I'm referring to the kind of oxidation that looks like baking soda has been sprinkled on it. If you rub it it'll come off but leaving it looking like someone rubbed baking soda into it. How do you remove it and leave it looking more or less like new aluminum and how do you keep it from oxidising in the future or at least slow it down. A non oily/sticky solution would be most desirable as would be one with minimal elbow grease.
