so what is everyone using to clean,buff,polish alum and plexi in a windshield?

the alum frame on mine has some pitting from the exposure to salt and the plexi is a little hazy with a few slight scuffs in it.

this works well on the plexi

vinegar works well on the aluminum including the exhaust tips

Matty the only way to get the pits out of the aluminum is wet sanding with some very fine paper 1200 or greater and then to a buffing wheel for the final shine.

This will leave raw aluminum so you will have to maintain the surface.

I use Mothers Mag polish on my raw aluminum stuff.
