Does anyone know of a good method for restoring the shine to a faded and oxidized aluminum bumper like those on the 74-75 Manta/Ascona??

Wetsand, buff, re-anodize would put it back to original. Buffing alone would be the cheapest and easiest and will bring most of the shine back but will eventually dull up again. Or if you want it shiny it can be chromed and would cost a little more than having it re-anodized.

I'm having my Manta painted signal yellow with black stripes/accents. Since the bumper ruber is so hard to come by, I plan on having the mouning holes for the rubber trim welded closed. Then have the bumper sanded smooth and anodized black. Let's just hope this works.

Harmon;
Do you have the little bumpers or the aluminum ones?
