How do you get antifreeze stains off of aluminum?
My water pump back gasket blew in 3 spots spewing the entire contents of the cooling system allover the entire engine compartment, out the cowl and up over the windshield, all over the wheels and basically covered the entire car top and bottom. Had to get towed home and finally washed it entire car about 6 hours later which happened to be about 1am - neighbor must have hated me that night! The paint and chrome washed off fine, but the brand new aluminum valve covers I just got along with the C&R Racing Rad and riddled with water droplet stains and run marks. The wheels look ok except where the hot antrfreeze pooled on the bottom of the barrels. Tried cleaning with First Kleen thinking it was polishing residue, then even tried Mother's polish - polished the aluminum elsewhere, but where the spots were did nothing. Even tried paint correction compound. Suggestions?
