I am looking for advice on restoring the aluminum alcoa rims and aluminum bumpers on a1985 325 motorhome to near original brightness if possible. Suggestions for what products to use and method would be greatly appreciated.

I used Mothers mag and aluminum polish,readily available, and got my bumpers looking pretty good, then I waxed them to seal. They look way better than they did when I got my rig, they were cloudy and dull, and now are fairly shiny. It sure uses up a lot of rags.
I would like to try Rolite or one of the other products I see out there on the web next time.
