I got a good deal on a Bomar 15 x 24 hatch and want to clean it up . The gasket is in great shape as it had vasoline on it so no cracks or dry rot . The same cannot be said for the aluminum as it has oxidized so I started to glass bead a section of the flange and also wire wheeled . The glassbead has left a flat easy to get dirty finish and the wire has left a shiny but you can see the marks finish . Anyone have a better solution I'm all ears . Thanks Dennis
