Try something like Blue magic metal cleaner, should be able to pick it up about anywhere like autozone etc., And if i remember right it is for most metals, inc. alloy, just check the
label, and try it out on a unoticable spot if possible, I have used this on my rims and my
diamond plate tool box and it works awesome.

Seriously, try the Mr. Clean eraser. Some kind of Nano fiber, space suit material, DNA clone type fabric. Just don't bare down like you're killing cockroaches. Cleans with clean water and the sponge.

No problem, I am actually going to try the Mr. Clean magic eraser, because if that works it
should be alot easier, The metal cleaner is not that easy and it takes alot of time, especially if you dont have a powerball or something, I was just trying to give you another option, and the Metal cleaner seems to leave a protective film on the surface as well.
