Is it possible to restore the rocker panel mouldings from a 65 fastback? I have been told they are made of anodized aluminum and they are not good candidates (too expensive) for repair at the buffing shops. Anyone have any tips or techniques? Has anybody tried to paint / clear coat them?

I had an extra old set to experiment with no dents,just oxidized,I hit them with 1200,1500 and finished with 2000 wet sand,then I polished on a home made polishing wheel and rouge I got at home depot,came out pretty good,then i taped the whole molding off with painters tape,cut out where it needed to be painted with lines,scuff down and shot it with semi gloss paint,now I have original moldings instead of the flimsy repo's ,worth a try
