Anodized exterior trailer sheathing


I have a travel trailer produced by the Streamline co. in the early 70s. The company employed an anodized finish on the aluminium exterior skin. I understand it is not possible to obtain a "shiny" finish on this material due to the anodized surface. However could you please offer some advice on how to 1) remove staining 2) restore the sheen 3) maintain the exterior on a regular basis.

Not so! A friend had one for several years. He used a military cleaner called Starbright that was probably made by Turco ( who was sold several years ago). His sparkled like a new dime after washing.
