Removing anodized aluminum coating

My 1980 Ford Fairmont has aluminum bumpers and trim that has gone cloudy over time. I have tried to polish them but can't get past the clear anodized finish. Anybody have any ideas how I can remove the stuff so I can polish the trim up?
Thanks

hi, cant say i've ever heard of the oven cleaner trick so i cant say if it works or not. anodizing is actually when the outer layer of aluminum is hardened and to polish it, yes, it needs to come off. any professional place i know of that does polishing bead blasts it off and for most guys at home, sand it off.
