Me and you both. I've hear to use "simple green" and a rag and it will come off. And I always wanted to paint it too. Which I will once I make money again.

I wonder if that really works... How much is a bottle of that?

Use some mag wheel cleaner for porous wheels. Spray it on and let it sit a few, rinse off with water. The aluminum will look like new.

It's that easy for even really bad manifolds and such?

It will look brand new. Polish will only compound the problem. It's a porous metal, polish will get in all the rough areas and look like chit.

I never mentioned meguire. I use eagle one wheel cleaner for porous wheels. I restore a lot of motor cycles with aluminum cases and they come out looking good as new. Spray it on, scrub a little with a brush, rinse it off. Simple as that.

Yes, I actually use it, its not something I read on the inter net.

My fault, I thought you said "meg wheel cleaner" haha. But ok. Do you happen to have a picture of the product?
