How do I clean up aluminium?

go you good thing

Hi all.

I have to make a custom bracket to mount my fuel tank and will be using a length of aluminium to do it.

I have some thats been in the shed for a while but it is quite crusty and needs a good clean up.

Anyone know the best way to bring it back to like new without scratching it up?

Many thanks in advance.

Steve.

It depends on how pitted it is. If it's pitted, use a 3M green scrubby pad and some aluminum polish.

If it's not pitted, use the aluminum polish.

Worked well.

It was pitted and I used the green scourer and some liquid Silvo.

I scrubbed 'with the grain' and it looks fine.

Many thanks again.
