    Default homemade solution to make aluminium shine

    Hey,

    How do make aluminium stuff look as new? DIY way. If not DIY, is there a cost effective way in a machine shop or industrial shop?

    I'm training an old engine part.

    Thx for sharing your experience.

    Try toothpaste, its a mild abrasive and should work. Also if you have any fine grit sandpaper you can try wet sanding it.
