aluminum windows

kaitland8January 12, 2006

I'm not sure if this is the right forum, but maybe someone here can help. I'm renovating a 1950's brick ranch that has those old fashioned roll out aluminum windows. The previous owners painted the brick and got some paint on the aluminum part of the window. And, some of the aluminum just looks kind of grimy. I have washed them, but not clean enough. Does anyone know what I can use to restore the aluminum (both inside and outside trim). Also, can I paint the aluminum window trim?
