Slowing Aluminium Oxidation

More polishing than technical but here goes ....

 

Have acquired a Se7en with quite a bit of aluminium. Have been working away to restore the condition but I don't have shares in Autosol or Mothers and wondered if anyone had come up with something (wax ?) to help slow the oxidation process?

I use Autoglym Metal Polish. Still takes some effort to apply but the 'protection' lasts longer.

Thanks for the information '7 Wonders'.

I've done the cutting back and not looking for a mirror finish. I just was looking for something to hold back the oxidation to make maintenance easier.

Yes 'ScottR400D' , I have considered painting it - I've had 3 other 7s and a 21 over 20+ years and so have some experience with a painted car ...
