Aluminum window trim

Alright - I'm about at wits-end.
I've tried about every mechanical and chemical technique/product I can think of to get rid of oxidation from the aluminum window trim.
I have invested a whack of time already - with mediocre results.
I've got so much time into them that at this point I wont settle for half-assed.
I want these things to POP
Burn your eyes out from glare
(or something like that)
Please - someone edify my sorry ass.

You need to know that Aluminum is extremely corrosive...until it gets the gray oxide coating. To stop it you need to coat it with a clear coating which will slow down the process or get it chrome plated. Continuously removing that gray oxide coating removes material.
