I've got a pair of '84/85 Mustang GT "Powered By Ford" aluminum valve covers. What's the best way clean them up without damaging the finish? thanks, Todd.

Simple Green and some soft steel wool or ScotchBrite Pad.

I am assuming these are a "natural aluminum" finish and not polished.

I got so tired of cleaning mine that I took them off and sent them out to be ," Jet Coated". Had them back on for three years now and I just have to wipe them off and they are BRIGHT AND SHINING ! Tom

The other suggestions will work great. Another method is to buy some "Never Dull" and use it on them.

I have a set that I coated with a clear acrylic spray over 10 years ago. They are finally a little dull but not pitting. I need to figure out how to get that coating off of them so I can do it again. They are the same ones in the link above. Some of the coating is starting to flake off. I like the aluminum brush look myself. I tried to keep them that way. If I can get this stuff off without effecting the aluminum I will not have to polish them.
