Metal refinishing

I have the 3 spoke Wolfsburg steering wheel where the spokes are made in aluminium. I will be having the wheel retrimmed in Nappa leather by MJ interiors  ( most likely) Before I send it to them, I want the aluminium looking its best. Anyone know have to get it look as good as new?

You sure its aluminium?

 I might be wrong but I would say its plated steel.

just to follow up on the type of metal, i just tried a magnet on it and it sticks so its not aluminium,

Off to the platers for reverse plating, polish then new chrome plate.

 Hi, could I ask how much you paid for the leather trim and re-plate of the steering wheel please. Have one that I'm keen to do exactly the same refurb on.
