I've used oven cleaner on alloys. Just monitor it's progress, and neutralize it when you like the finish. Wicked stuff, don't breathe it.

I got a Splitdorf 4 cylinder mag rebuild from an original paint bike. The guy polished and repainted it even though I told him no cosmetic work. Does anybody know how to make the alloy and brass dull again without damaging it.
