I recently took off the aluminum from the inside of my 1964
tradewind to replace the insulation and fix some electrical problems. I am going to paint the bottom portion of the inside walls but I want to have the ceiling be polished aluminum. The aluminum that I removed is in very good shape but there is paint and what appears to be wallpaper glue on the aluminum. My question is: Can I strip the paint off of the old aluminum and still polish it to a mirror shine? If so, what is the best way to do that? are there certain products or can I just sand it off? Thank you for your time and resources.
