Q: I recently purchased a beautiful vintage Eames aluminum group executive chair that needs a little TLC on the metal arms. The dealer said that the aluminum can be restored to like new, as there are some blotches on it right now he attributed to a coating. I can't find anything online on how to treat/polish the aluminum myself.
