Clear coating aluminum

Does anyone know of a product and or method to protect aluminum from oxidation?
My intake and valve cover seem to have a gold colored finish on them but it really needs to be redone.
It seems a shame to spend a lot of time cleaning a buffing aluminum only to have it in a very short time good bad again.

I think you can put car wax on it, but im not sure if the wax will adhere to aluminum. or you can try some of this stuff.

Over the past couple days I have check around and I think I will have the valve cover and intake manifold power coated. I comes in may color including the BMW bronze and clear.
It's possible to do it yourself the gun in about $150 and you need and expendable oven.
