Sod all the fancy paints. Nowt wrong with maintaining the finish polished or not with wd40 on a rag. I had big ali stone guards on a cobra kit for 15 years and thats all they ever got or needed. On smaller ali bits i would go for one of these kits http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2510536258... 4.m1423.l2649

bare ally is hard work but is a lot lot cheaper - like nowt but finger print removing with the constant cleaning... been there done it wit the dax rush.
finger prints are even hard to keep off - but it can be done. best way to polish it is one of those wet n dry pads - keep the strokes long from end to end and it will look great.
panels can be sealed with sealer in the joints like clear stuff is fine.. trim off excess so noone knows
does look good in bare - would recommend a compressor air blaster to THOROUGHLY DRY the hard to reach gaps you can dry.

you must dry it every time it gets wet
