LOL, I just posted a thread on this yesterday! please read it, it took me a little over an hour. I can go ahead and tell you, there is no super fast way to do it, but the powerball is awesome.

just get a powerball or a polisher.... doing it by hand is going to be a pain in the ass!

Look up "Nuvite" It's used to polish Aluminum airplanes and Airstream travel trailers. There's no quick way to polish anything.
