aluminum manifold renewal

This subject has come up from time to time when a fellow scores a manifold from a swap meet or whatever. I was surfing, looking for another product when I came across this....

Sounds like some dangerous stuff. I worked at a railroad switch & signal company years ago. Had a aluminum degreasing vat, heated liquid in bottom with cooling coils about 2ft above the liquid around outer diameter of vat kept the fumes from escaping. Can't remember the whole chemical name MethylEthylyadayadayadaydayada about that long, strong carcinogens. You just dipped the part in the circulated fumes coming off the heated liquid & grease, dirt or anything that was on the aluminum instantly dropped off.

That is some good stuff, and gives the clean aluminum a natural look. When an aluminum part is sandblasted you can tell it right off. IMHO there are few things that look more out of place than a sandblasted OEM aluminum intake on a classic muscle car. Do not be tempted to use oven cleaner either, the caustic lye will discolor the aluminum.
