    I used some Turtle wax Color Back on my '72 Ford hood and smooth sheet metal. I would think most car cleaner waxes would work. But if the paint is really oxidized and dried out its harder to do and might want to look over at a detailing forum for better techniques and products.

    I haven't found a product for the rougher casting areas of engine, transmission, rear end, and axle housings. I don't think there is an easy way. I have used boat non skid deck cleaner and soft brush with a little success to shine a bit and help repel dust and grass chafe.

    Could try some kerosene mixed with water. I'd go more kerosene than water.
    I would even give WD-40 a try.

    Zaino polishing products. They've got compounds for just about any surface and they work terrific.

    I have experience with Zaino Bros. They are a tad pricey but you do get an awesome finish.

    Once turned a black car with a terrible milky oxidized and scratched up finish to showroom shine. It took me a couple days worth of polishing but it looked new when I was done. I think prev owner polished it with steel wool due to all the swirl marks. Was able to buff them all out with Zaino.
