Put on your rubber gloves and goggles and begin to remove any clear coat or lacquer with the stripper.
Begin sanding your aluminum with a very strong sandpaper. Sand out any scratches or imperfections until you are left with a smooth finish.
Next, switch to a smaller grit sandpaper, and sand in the OPPOSITE direction from the one you were sanding in before.
Continue to lower the grit until your aluminum is completely smooth and the sanded item looks the way you want it.
Finish with a super-fine sandpaper to achieve that mirror finish!
