Aluminum Coating

I tried doing a search and maybe it's already been answered, but does anyone know what MC coats the tower and speaker cans with to keep them from corroding? I'm not sure if its an anodized finish or if it's all been clear coated.

The reason I am asking is I have had to make a few custom pieces of aluminum for my boat and I want to coat them to match. I also purchased a dinged up set of lights that I want to polish back to new, but I am afraid to touch it until I know what I am going to re-coat it with. I'm leaning towards an automotive clear coat but I am not sure.

Thanks!

Bright dip anodize. I've been interested in this myself for parts that I've made for the boat. I haven't got a lot size quoted yet though.

International hardcoat out of MI can do this for you. If the parts are already coated, they will need to be stripped and recoated. They will strip them for you.

What is the best Polish for the towers or will it remove anodize?
