Polish tower?

This my just be my OCD, but has anyone ever polished their tower? What did you use that worked best for you?

it's not clear coat, its anodized. Metal polishes can remove the anodization, so you really dont want to use them. Pledge furniture polish for me

Will the Pledge furniture polish help my gauge housings and switch panels? They are dull and I need a solution to brighten those up.
