I know this info comes late but I use a liquid called Alum-Brite. Spray it on, let it sit for a few minutes and hose it off with water. Amazing stuff. Detailers working on semi trucks use this on the aluminum trailer bodies to make them glisten.

Wow 3 years! I would seriously think about getting it over to Checkmate. Maybe they would be able to get it back to you by spring 2019.
