    I’m working on the aluminum trim on a ’66 ford truck. Some pieces of this trim are scratched or pitted through what appears to be a thick anodized layer on the surface. To get a good finish, this anodized layer has to first be removed to bare metal. The only way I’ve found to remove this layer is by hand sanding with 220 grit, then 600 grit, then 1000 grit paper – then on to the buffing wheels tripoli, white rouge etc. I’m going to die before I get all the pieces done this way 😮 . Is there a better way to remove this hard surface layer?
