the black on the rag is the oxidation being removed, you may just need to keep doing it or try another metal polish

The powerball or a cheap orbital buffer will help you out. I polished mine for an hour with some polish I picked up from a truck stop. When the suns in the right spot, you'll be blinded by the box.

You can use metal polish on the black boxes. They are painted or powdercoated, neither of which need metal polish.
