Mirrored aluminum


I have been able to access some marine grade aluminium sheet cheap and will be using it to front some kitchen cupboards. I would like to polish it to a mirror finish. I have tried using wet & dry sandpaper (1200 then 2000 wet)followed with a rubbing compound for auto paints and then polish and wax.

The finish is better but not as highly polished as I would like. When finally finished it will be lacquer coated.

Can you suggest the appropriate materials to use ?
