cleaning frame -help

  1. Hey guys I'm trying to detail my bike and the frame has these tiny spots all over it I'm assuming are oxidation, I've tried using different products that claim to get rid of it and bring the metal back to a nice smooth look but nothing seems to work, anyone here ever find a way to get rid of those

    Sandpaper & repaint?

    A picture would help...


  3. Nothing to repaint frame is aluminum
  4. Mothers Alum polish ;)
  5. pretty sure at one time it was clearcoated
  6. I had read also that to get the spots out I would have to basically wet sand it with different grits over a few days then once done and polished I would have to re seal it, that true?
  7. u heard right-
    wouldn't start w/ bigger than 100gt and remember mostly u start by removing/feathering the clear over /around the spots.
    The polish comes in different grits too and it's best to use power tool and a mask (avoid screaming head ache).
    spray can paint never gets really hard
