I've had decent luck with back to black on surfaces that I don't touch. It's great to make the part look good for a little while,
But it doesn't last.
Some people have good luck with Rub & Buff art products for cleaning up alum surfaces. (you can find it at a lot of art supply houses) It has it's place but it can look a little plastic, or fake.
I've just discovered that Fast Orange works really really well at cleaning really dirty chrome wheels.
