I know it was mentioned but the Greased Lightning works very well in about 10 to 15 minutes for anything I have done. If you leave the aluminum in any solution too long it will turn a gray to blackish color. Do not use the Orange Greased Lighting. It will do nothing. Get the one in the yellow, black, and white bottle. The one that says 'wear gloves'.

If you get very good tape or I use flashing tape (a high grade tape used in molding and forming of fiberglass and carbon fiber) you can cut out patterns or logos and mask off sections of the part to stay the original color.

Castrol Super Clean works also, wear gloves with this stuff when used full strength, it really does a number on your hands if you don't...Don't spill it on your waxed floors either unless you want to spend your weekend stripping your floors to match the spilled area... Dont ask me how I know these things. haha

Thanks for the replies again guys. I had a look in my local Supermarket (Morrissons for your English folk out there) and they only had a couple of oven cleaners, certainly not 'Greased Lightning' or anything else mentioned on here. The Cilit Bang stuff they do have though, I will get some tomorrow and give it a go.

Hi Steve, what's happening Saturday night? Is it one of the once a month meetings again or something else?

I'll be at Elburton next Friday though, might have my new car running by then....

Cheers all, Chris.
