Very nice Barry! sometimes you can purchase a bottle of hydrogen peroxide and add about a table spoon of muriatic acid to it lightly spray it on the aluminum with a mister bottle every couple hours over a few days however when you get the desired look take baking soda and mix it with water and spray that over the aluminium to stop the etching process. Done correctly will result in a very old looking product. I know the late Mike Smith used to add Magnesium to his to get a darker color.

Here is the repop body. does anyone know how to age aluminum?
