Polishing interior aluminum

We have stripped the Zolotone from our 1963 Globetrotter using Citrix. We still have not decided if we will pain or polish it. If we go the polishing route to bring out a high shine, what is the best product/method? Do we use a Nuvite product or is something better suggested. We will repaint the endcaps; any special preparation? Thanks

No first hand help with interior polishing, however, we have polished two trailer exteriors with great success.

Polishing the interior panels is the same as polishing the exterior panels...there are many different ways to do it, but whichever way you chose it will be a very messy proposition best done with the interior components removed. There is a whole section dedicated to polishing here, you will probably get the help you are looking for in one of these existing threads...good luck! And, welcome to the forums!
