Subject: [CR]Refreshing old parts


Need your advice on how to refresh old aluminum (and maybe steel, but mostly Al) parts *without* re-polishing them. I am talking about parts that are still in very good/excellent/NOS condition but have some slight wear just from being stored for years, or very slightly used. A full-on re-polishing will (I'm afraid) make them look phony... so, how to restore a nice old part to its former glory without over-doing it? (Hope the question makes sense...) Thanks.
