Aluminium engine parts restore

Hi everyone,

I'm on the lookout for a product that I can use on my throttle bodies and timing covers whilst in situ and thought I might be wasting my time. I've never known of a spray on product that can go some way to clean up ally.

Whilst searching the net I came across a raceglaze product called Alubright Deoxidiser. I have no experience with spray on deoxidisers so need a little help- is this a good product, does it even work or is there something better out there?

Alubright deoxidiser - http://www.raceglaze.co.uk/car-care-...ngine-cleaner/

If this stuff works for £12 I will be very happy.

As no-one else has commented, this is precisely what this product is for and I think you will be very happy.
Its very popular, often recommended and used by restorers/workshops etc, and I use it myself.

Hope that helps

Thanks for the reassurance. I think I would have probably gone for it anyway along with the jet lag lacquer to preserve the finish.

I'll let you know how I get on.

Very effective product. Tried a small test area after work and it was quick to bring the ally back to a clean, unblemished finish. I will have to go to town on it when I get a few mins but yes, very pleased

Just be careful on plastic part as it does stain.

Thanks. Yes I am taking care.

Doing the engine in situ with plastics in place I tend to spray it into a lid and brush it on.

I think they are, the photos have been taken from different angles.

Can this product be used to prep cast aluminium prior to painting?
