Keg polishing idea - Cameo? - what's yours?

I recently made an attempt to polish the outside of my corny kegs to give them a quick makeover. They had some left over old sticker adhesive, black marks, and misc gunk on them.

I gave them a good scrub with a yellow kithcen scrubbie and some "Cameo" steel pot/aluminum cleaner.
Church & Dwight - Cameo<sup></sup> Copper, Brass & Porcelain Cleaner

This worked really well, and gave them a nice easy clean up. I still have some sticker goo on some, I may try to get it off with "goof off" or "goo gone". Then I may re scrub them again with Cameo for a final makeover transformation.

My main goal is to make thme look as nice as possible for a pro look in my glass door front JC fridge and kegorator.

What are some other alternatives that may give me a better results? Steel wool? B-brite? PBX? Oxy clean? I want them shiny clean if possible, please share any other options or experience you may have. Thanks.

I thought mine were a lost cause - i scrubbed them down with scotch brite pads and some spray-on stainless cleaner, and absolutely nothing happened. Maybe I'll look for cameo.

Maybe you can use these Grain, Hops, Yeast Reference Charts

I would look to like for a drill or grinder mounted stripping disc (think scotchbrite pad on a drill)... they've got complete "sanding/cleaning/polishing" kits too...
