Aluminum Polish for Tower

What does everyone use to polish the aluminum in their MC's? My ZFT-4 has some spots on it like tarnish or something. Want to polish her up.

I believe the tower is clear anodized - it won't polish like bare aluminum will (if that is the case). If it is anodized and a portion of the coating is worn off - then Mother's will wprk well on it. I never use anything on mine but Boat Bright or just a wet towel but I don't have any oxidation spots showing.

Mine is a 2013, is it normal that the tower is oxidizing already? My Binimi bracket already fell out. Am trying to figure out how to anchor that back in.

I agree. The tower should be clear anodized. If you remove the anozing you will be repolishing every couple of months

I agree, used it on mine and it took away those little spots that develop.

I checked the Mother's Metal Polish bottle and it specifically says on the back NOT to be used on Anondized Surfaces. I did buy a Meguiar's product that is made for Aluminum rims that does say is safe for anodized coatings. Only issue is that it needs to be rinsed off thoroughly.

I was thinking of using my fly high pump to rinse but what if I get some of this product on my vinyl?
