Frame restoration - 1100 H

Hi,

I would like to clean and restore the ali frame. I have the bike stripped.
Apart from scotchbrite and 320 grit sandpaper any other good options?

Considering a frame polish but given the bike pretty stock I would like to try and keep they frame finish standard?
Glass bead blast?
Soda blast?

don't blast it, the factory finish on the frame is an anodizing, just do a good clean with a degreaser or paint thinners, nothing abrasive,

Hi Pete, Trouble is the frame is pitted.

Ill give it a good de-grease and clean and see how she looks.

Could always get anodized again
