John what are you going to do with the bare aluminum?

IF you're interested in polishing it. Go to Lowe's and look where the truck tool boxes are.
There's a polish there in a blue bottle. It's called Diamond Brite truck box polish. $12.98

I've tried a lot of polishes and this is the best I've found. It doesn't take much product to make it shine and very little effort. Doesn't seem to take scratches out but just shines shit like crazy.
First time I used it I couldn't believe how good it works. I heard about it on a vintage RV site.
Tried to link it here but couldn't using Lowe's app.

I was just gonna polish on it some.. I'll try the stuff you mentioned at Lowes.... I don't think it's worth the time to get real crazy on it... or it will end up a never ending polish project.. ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,)
