    Within the past two to three weeks there was a thread concerning engine cleaning/detailing. A part number was posted for a aluminum cleaner available from NAPA. It was used after Simple Green and the results looked great. I can't find the thread now. Might someone be so kind as to repost or point me in the right direction.
    Thanks in advance.

    You can also use aluminum cleaner that you can get from your local supermarket, and it works just as well and is cheaper. It looks like a can of comet or bonami powdered cleanser. You take some of the powder, mix it with water into a "sludge", and then rub the sludge on your aluminum with a rag. Outstanding results, takes off all the surface oxidation, and more "natural" than rub-n-buff.
