Metal Polishing Myths, Half Truths and Lies

6. All polished surfaces should be waxed or lacquered if you want it to really last

Definitely not. This depends on environment.

Pieces subjected to ocean environments need protection with lacquers or clear coats.

Show vehicles want their brightwork to be waxed where it counts, aluminum is normally wxaed to imptove the lustre. With stainless it depends on the quality of finish. Show chrome should never really need more than an ultrafine wax free maintenance polishing. Areas subject to heat should be wax and lacquer free.

Antiques and museum pieces should be waxed with a PH neutral wax to protect them.

Lacquers and clear coats discolor with age. In fact most of them detract from the finish immediately. They also tend to crack and become porous. This allows oxidization to start.
