Keeping polished alloy parts from oxidizing

If you've got polished alloy parts can you give them a coat of lacquer to effectively seal them and to stop them becoming dull or oxidizing.

Next thing is how do you get the lacquer to adhere as the parts will have polish residue etc on them.

simplest way is to use car wax once polished...something like the auto glym extra gloss protection  :daumenhoch:

I used to mirror polish alloy wheels and this was how I advised customers to maintain them....although most never did! On a bike it will be more than adequate....without affecting the finish visually  :daumenhoch:
