All AL pieces I just cleaned up with AL cleaner.  However:  my mechanic
George Baxter is very fond of taking all the AL bits to the grinder
bench, and polishing them up to a high sheen.  I was sceptical at first
but he argued and I now believe that once you give them all a mirror
finish, they stay that way a long time and are pretty easy to restore.
Even the AL turbo half comes up nicely.  It certainly looks fabulous.
Whether you do this or not, I wouldn't paint AL parts, it just doesn't
take paint that well.
