Hmmmm, I have used it a lot, and had some lovely results.  That said, 
aluminum is not stable when exposed to air and will always oxidise and 
get icky.  If you strip off the original waxy coating, or the 
aftermarket grease and gunk coating, your aluminum bits will be ugly the 
next day if you don't clear coat them.
