window frame polishing

I have searched the forums, but for some reason had no luck finding a post thread where someone posted their beautifully restored/polished window frames.

Can anyone tell me what product they have used to reassure the shiny lustre to their aluminum window frames?

Thanks!

I'm sure there will be contradicting opinions, but I use Mothers Mag polish on our all aluminum teardrop. Available at auto parts stores and Walmart.

Hi: calindor... Here's one that I did from our former Boler. I used Nev-r-Dul wading/polish from the Hardware store. Work'd like a charm...just follow the directions on the can.

To the Shining!

Hi,
I tried many solvent/dissolve products but my frames were so pitted I went Princess Auto and bought a polishing kit for the drill. It had 3 different colours of abrasives, (wish I had marked which buffer wheel got which compound!) and went at it. Opps, first I lightly sanded with 400 grit.
Lots of work, worth the effort.
Good luck!
Ps. lots of info in this site. use the google search option.
Dave
