If you live near a truck stop, I recommend getting some white rouge, aka jewelers rouge. Its the stuff that makes dull aluminum like on tanker trucks look like chrome. Great on most any kind of metal surface not only to protect it, but to make it stand out! Most truck stops sell it in mass quantity for guys to polish fuel tanks, and wheels, so its cheap, and easy to use by hand.
If you can't find any, then I would fall back on Mothers Billet Polish as a great alternative. Hope that helps a little!
