Window Frame Pitting

We are replacing the gaskets on our '66 Safari windows and cleaning/polishing the window frames in the process. We have tried to remove the pitting on the frames and are having no luck in many areas. Following forum and google suggestions, we have tried sand paper, wet sandpaper, nylon bristle brush, tilex, brillo pads, Scotchbrite, G6 compound and 0000 Steel wool.
Is it realistic to remove all the pitting? If so, what can we try next? If not, do we paint over with aluminum paint or just leave it as a "beauty mark"?
