Use SOS Pads, the soap is a good lubricant, and the steel wool will clean the rust stains off.
The aluminium parts, it just depends on how shiney you want them to be, but once again use the SOS pad and just do NOT let the soap dry out, it will make it hard to polish what you are working on.
Like stated about the pipes, 600 grit wet paper and then polish.
