    just stripped and painted my 73 RS LT Z28. (had it since 1977). the rear and front window "Moldings" are in good shape for originals, but, they have lost their "shine", look "Cloudy". I know they are anodized , but can They be "POLISHED" to bring Back the SHINE ?? Thanks

    nope - anodizing needs to be removed before polishing the bare aluminum

    Hey Lou. I used oven cleaner and steel wool to remove the anodising, then wet sanded with coarser grit gradually reducing to 3000, then a buff then clear coat. They take a bit of work, but come up really nice.
