Aluminum cleaner {acid} will brighten those bleachers right up. Spray on , hose off. Truck places sell it as aluminum trailer cleaner.

Dude - where to I begin? You got charm. You got passion. Your name is Cleetus and you gotta mullet. Total labor of love. Have I ever dreamed of owning a race track? Can't say that I have. Am I in to it - well - up to this moment - I didn't think so. But there is no way to watch this video and not root for your success. Tear it up brother. *edit: Oh - and that grass? Takes forever to establish good Bermuda. Tough as nails and re-grows itself in summer. Learn to love the off season color - will thrive when its Texas hot out in the middle of summer and you will grow to appreciate what you have inherited.

Hey for cleaning the aluminum bleachers we used this special aluminum cleaner for pontoon boat that was at a boat store, can't remember the name. But it took all the grime off the pontoons with just a pressure washer. Comes in 1-5 gallon jugs. Can't remember the name, but it's a white jug. Worked amazing! Pontoons looked brand new after about 30min of washing.

A possible fix for the oxidation is a chemical that's primarily used in washing fleet trucks called brite or aluma brite. I've not heard of it being used on oxidation that bad but it might be worth a shot!

Does an ALUMINUM Bleacher and Lightening Mix??? Toaster seats? Idk,,, Hope not. Shouldn't you Install an EMERGENCY Evacuation Gate at the end of the bleachers instead of closing/ fencing it off? Might be a good safety idea in case people need to escape quickly from both sides during dangerous weather or an emergency for EMT Rescue to One of the Fans. ALSO: Mark Areas With NUMBERED SIGNS so Family or rescue can go right to their Lost Kid or Emergency Location. All Staff On the Same Radio Frequency so everyone knows immediately if something is going on. The FF Looks SUPER AMAZING!!! You all have done one hell of a job! Cragers For The HotDog Cart??

To De-Oxidize the bleachers look for a Pressure washing company that specializes in Commercial Trucks, they have the special chemicals to remove the Oxides and polish up the aluminum

Dale Earnhardt Jr is having massive success with his podcast and his ISpost channel of clips from that podcast. The one where Darrell Waltrip talks about Sr has to be the best racing video I've ever watched - and it includes no racing! I am launching the hashtag #doitfordaledalejr. Dale Jr would love to come to the Freedom Factory and cut laps in the Dale Truck. Cleetus and/or his and/or Jr's sponsors will cover the expenses to get Jr there long enough to loop the Freedom Factory and then, maybe, do a burnout in Toast (can't do Neighbor as he's not a GM product, I assume. Would be huge community points if he caned Neighbor around the pad). Spread it on Cleetus' videos, Jr's videos, and your Insta and Twitter if you have followers. Let's make this hashtag trend so hard that sponsors have no choice but to get 200% behind making this happen. Godspeed y'all.

What would make it all come together and look awesome would be seal the entire surface around the track . Blacktop sealer on all the foot traffic areas. Cheap , easy , and looks good. You have built you a place where people can come together and have fun . Just don't lose yourself in it. Stay the Cletus wel all love .

try looking into Hydrochloric acid to wash the bleachers with, it will foam up and eat off any debris.. wash it down and watch it shine.. look it up on youtube 1st tho!

i also see in a video that using an all purpose cleaner after using hydrochloric acid will help neutralize the acid levels and residue that is left over on the aluminum

Instead of the drop in/over gate a swinging gate is a much better solution and really not much different in cost to construct but looks and functions 1000% better. I have seen them at several other tracks over the years additionally now that he has opening they will find a whole lot more reasons open it up for untold numbers of reasons mostly for maintenance. If I were Cleetus I would be looking at adding a solar panels or even section of unused land on the FF for solar panels because like he said he is looking to be there for the long run and the electrical bill for the FF has to be a nice little chunk of change each month and it will only go up in the future. Personally I think a future upgrade to the track should be the catch fence for not only spectator safety but racer safety as well Lastly painting the grates was a good idea but If I were Cleetus I would also extend the paint 6" on either side of the grates.
