I find that some WD40 to remove the grease. then wash-down with degreaser work best.
We use basic buffing compund and elbow grease. I am not an expert, but this seem to work well on all the aluminum pieces.
For paint, an airbrush kit with a mixture of gloss and flat black to get a nice semi-gloss finish.
