whew, I have some polished aluminum on a hot rod of mine, so I know for sure if you keep your motor looking that good you must put some serious effort into maintaining that finish.

yeah I took scotch brite to all my polished aluminum and turned it into flat aluminum. I honestly like the look of flat aluminum with maroon scotch brite, but part of the decision was because it was nearly impossible to maintain the polish. A few wet days of just condensation, even garage kept 100% of the time, and it would be all corroded with that white cruddy powder that forms on aluminum.
Now it takes 1/10th the time to brush it back down with scotch brite.

Never used scotch brite before, I use Autosol then finish it off with Diamond White, but if going to show I use a hd wax the night before just incase it rains on the way,

After a lot of head scratching to find the right tool to get in between the fins I thought of the wifes wooden nail files and cotton buds they did the job,
