so ive searched the net for different ways to clean aluminium and there seems to be 4 main ways;
1. good old fashioned scrub
2. costic/acid cleaning
4. take it to the man with the glass/bead blaster
ive tried good old fashioned scrubbing and my cam box came up pants, took too long and not achieving results.
i put some the cylinder chamber in the dishwasher and that seemed ok but mum wasnt happy.
ive just been out and got some mr. muscle oven cleaner and its done the trick nicely, had to take precautions like not swallowing it and stuff but it worked well.. ive used some wire wool on it afterward to get it shinyer.
although this is working it took a while and just isnt perfect, would anyone recomend glass blasting? someone said it damages aluminium..?
also the surfaces are still rough and it would mean a lot of sanding down to get perfect, just wondering what the best soloution is?
the cam box was caked with shit and ill upload a pic so you can see how well its done so far..
