Straightening and repairing aluminum trim pieces can seem like a daunting task, although many of the same skills and processes you use to refinish car body panels are also used when straightening trim. Mark Simpson demonstrates the process of removing dents and scratches and returning a luster to trim pieces by polishing aluminum.

    After the anodizing has been removed, what is the best way to keep the polished piece from dulling over time.

      Hello. The pieces we stripped for this video were interior pieces and are easily maintained by simply applying aluminum polish once a year.
      Exterior pieces would require more attention, or having them re-anodized or flash plated.
      Thanks
