Polishing Aluminum

Nick, I've got some bare aluminum I need to polish, what do you recommend? It's the radius rods and wheels from the car in the pic, I'd like to get them looking like new if I could. here's pics for comparison.

Depending on how far gone they are(hard to tell in the picture). You may be able to get away with just some Mag and Aluminum polish. Meguiar's makes a very good product that comes in a medium size black tin can. If that doesn't work, give me a call, I have some tricks up my sleeve

Awesome, thanks man, They're pretty far gone, they look like they've got a haze over the top of 'em, for lack of a better term, it looks like the metal has a cataract.
