If  you are referring to your 80, this trim was anodized from the factory.  It is going to be hard to clean up and make look new without getting them reanodized.  A buffing wheel with some polish will help some but as I said before, they will never look new unfortunately.

Mother's polish (but not too vigorous) then clean, mask, and clear coat the trim with semi-gloss rattle-can. That is about as good as you'll get. You can test what it will approximately look like by rubbing a little water on the trim first and looking before it dries.
