Any ideas on polishing aluminum parts ?  And protect already shinny new valve covers, water pump/timing cover, Holley carb, intake ?  Mothers, Zoopseal/Shine Seal, Wolfgangs, Gords, Black Dimond, even Brasso,+ a dozen others?  Clear powder coat, Hi Temp clear, ceramic ?

Lots of elbow grease you can clear them but after a while if you drive it much it the clear will start yellowing from the heat from the engine

I heard that sharkhide works good. I haven't tried it myself yet. I've been meaning to order some for a while just never can remember.

a bit of expense and uptake, but i just started getting decent with a product called kg gunkote. baked on finish similar to cerakote. either would work well, protect from chemicals. etc. i have a set i want to try to clear, as i haven't, will be interesting to see if leaving the smooth surface will adhere well or not. i just used brushed stainless for stock style rusty bolts on my motorcyle, not really stainless in appearance, but matches oem look of the bolts

i know this isnt what you asked, but i painted my aluminum black. heads and block are blue. black carb.
my car is blue sheet metal with a black vinyl top and black four pin hood (the black hood and top looks good on mopars so i used it on mine). in the end it works pretty well.
i gave up on keeping aluminum clean. the black and blue looks nice. and much easier to clean and re-spray if needed.

The key is getting it to a mirror finish.  Sand with progressively finer grits until you think that it is perfect, then start polishing. You'd be surprised at how long it will retain a mirror finish if you remove all the bumps and pores.
