Aluminum Refinishing



1998

I am rebuilding an older motorcycle with an unpainted aluminum engine. I am wondering if anyone has any information on how I can restore the engine to it's original shine or better.

Thanks
Tom

Sand the surface cimolety smooth using a very abrasive sander at first ending with a fine sandpaper [affil. link to info/product at Rockler] then get a grinder and put a buffing wheel on it. Get some rooush from a truck stop comes in a brick cheap and buff till you achieve the look you want. It can come out better then chrome. Takes time but it's worth it.
