Hi, I just purchased enough items from your catalog to get me going on polishing/buffing aluminum. I plan to specialize in intake manifolds and valve covers. The problem is that these parts arrive to me in very greasy, grimey, oily condition and obviously need to be cleaned first. My question is, what is the most effective way to clean these parts?
I’ve used laquer thinner but tend to go through alot of it (gets expensive). I’ve used simple green but it takes too long. I’ve used gasoline but it smells for a while and takes too long to dry off. I was thinking of using paint stripper then hosing it down with hot water.
I will appreciate any tips to speed this process up for me.
