if you scraped the paint off (pretty easy, it'll flake off) there'll will be white powder-like stuff underneath. just alu corrosion.
This guy is a psychic... man you were so right. I actually drove home from work this afternoon just to get me a potatoknife from the kitchen and cut the paint off there. And what came from underneath was powdered sugar (or maybe powdered toast... poooooowdered tooooaaasssttt maaaaaaannnnn)
Anywayz, got the whole area cleared of paint, made me some pictures (for them grandkids and the album hehe). And after getting to it with a steel brush (medium and flixible one of course) it now looks as normal clear aluminium. That white powder even came off with a damp cloth.
Me happy, me gonna get a respray when I get some money again hehehe
