    Buy some Mother's polish and some 000 fine steel wool. The combo will polish the s**t of of anything aluminum! I used the two do do my original valve covers on my 72 'vette.

    Wenol cream works real good too. I used it on some billet rims I had on an old lo-lo I owned and it workes GREAT! But its a little pricey.

    Not too sure about aluminum trim...
    but i have spent hours polishing billet aluminum stuff for my camaro. ...Pulleys, Brackets, Radiator...
    I use a buffing wheel on a motor or grinder type deal... and get some buffing compound. ruby or rogue i think they call it. Red stuff is a little coarse and the white is to finish it and get a mirror like finish..
    Oh yeah.... and lots of time and patience to polish anything.
