I use white diamond metal polish and then wax over it with car wax. I did this past April and it looks just as good today as it did in April. it stands up to the rain here in the NW.

If I may add my two cents worth, I would highly recommend MASTER FORMULA'S METAL GLOSS AND THEIR SEALER GLOSS. Great for Aluminum, Chrome, Brass, Stainless Steel and more. The Metal Gloss really brought out the aluminum and stainless shine on my 53 year old 1964 Fairlane. BOTH METAL AND SEALER can be purchased through e-bay from $39.99 to $44.99 and free shipping.
There is also a video that you can watch on youtube and e-bay.
There are many good waxes on the market but it's up to the consumer to decide which is right for him or her.
Good Luck!
