I'd like to find something which can be applied by cloth.You should get an acrylic laquer in a rattle can, mask bodywork and give it a couple of coats. That will give it UV protection and stop it oxidising again for a few years.
If you leave it uncoated it will start to oxidise fairly quickly.

3M stuff is very good.The 3M wipes are self contained and just wipe on very easily:
This is the result of the 3M polishing kit and the wipes which were last used last October - I'm really impressed with the longevity bearing in mind how easy they were to use.
Micro fibre cloths by hand. Fitted to the vehicle I wouldn't be comfortable using machine.Looks good. Did you use a machine, or was that done by hand?
