Hmmm.. so I was playing around with Christine and I noticed that my Grille Halves may not be as bad as I thought. They are covered in an almost desert like film. Fine sand if you will. What would be safe to use to scrub this stuff off without scratching the grille or removing the anodized coating?

You can start with a Brillo or SOS pad or 000 steel wool, these are very fine and will not scratch then if you are up for it, hit it with some Mothers polish. Good luck

I've wondered about this myself cause I worry about damaging the anodized coating also.

Agreed, those methods are pretty gentle, I actually used a polisher on my grill with good results

Anodizing is very hard Wayne...don't be afraid. SOS pads or fine steel wool/soap sounds like the right approach to me too...for now.

If the grilles don't polish up the way you like, the anodizing will have to be stripped off so you can get down to the aluminum. To strip off anodizing, spray Easy Off Oven Cleaner on, let sit and scrub (wear gloves) with those green scouring pads. Once the anodizing has been removed from every nook and cranny, then you polish with a small buffer.

A lot of work but very rewarding. I just went through that process with a pair of wheel well moldings for my 68 Fury.

Bob
