Cleaning anozided Avion

Does anyone know just how polished an anodized Avion can get and what tactics and equipment it will take?

Depends on the year. The Avion group on Yahoo has a list of what years certain anodizing techniques were used. If I'm not mistaken, pre 67 can be shined up to a mirror finish and 68-7? Must be stripped of the anodizing using oven cleaners, after that forget it, the best results you will get are by treating with WD-40. Check out their group to verify my dates.
