aluminium polish.

Hi people, looks like an interesting community and fits in nicely with what I'm presently doing, ie trying to save a moped from the landfill, idealy on a budget.

I'm struggling to justify the £4.99 cost of Solvol autosol, but in the same breath I'm needing to polish up some aluminium Forks and remove rust from steel parts on said "ped", have tried baking soda and vinigar on the aluminium parts, but that leaves them dull and no amount of elbow grease removes the corroded "Pits" the way Solvol does.

Any ideas, anyone.

Thanks in anticipation.
