Anyone know how to remove radiator fluid stains from polished aluminum? If I repolish the pieces, they shine well but you can still see the stain in the alum.

You'll have to polish the metal past where it's been etched by the coolant. It's more than a stain, it's deeper into the aluminum. Bummer, I know!

Oh well, a little more elbow power should take care of it then. Thanks

Use a coarser compound first to get the stain out, then progress to finer and finer compounds to resurrect the shine.

All that I've got at the house is jeweler's rouge. I needed a new buffing wheel anyways. Time to call Eastwood.
