I don't know anything about bling, but I know a guy that does. PM Bubba, aka Cripple Midget Racing on the boards. He is the most anal guy on the boards, hands down! He has polished aluminum heads, intake, block, even his oil pan is polished. AND.......... he does all his work with one hand. Seriously, PM him, whatever he uses is what you want.
Ceramic coated valve covers and tunnelram. Never polish again.
Spray a little vinegar and water mixture on it and wipe the water spots off. It's not for everybody, but it works for me (aka the lazy man)
I might even pull my engine plates and bell housing cover and do them too.
How's your off season going Kevin? Hanging in there?
Hey Dan, workin on getting the new motor in, should run out pretty good. I like that ceramic coat. Just trying to keep up with a polished scoop was too much for me. I use my boat just about every weekend so polished aluminum sucks.
Obviously ceramic coatings can't compete from a shine aspect, but they sure are a lot easier to maintain. I just don't have the discipline that it takes to keep polished aluminum polished. Like you Kev I run my boat a lot. Pretty much every weekend in the summer. If I'm not at the river, it's running the lakes here in Arizona. No secret I hate polishing. Using it as much as we do, I'd have to be polishing all week so it looked good the next time out etc. etc.
Steve's ride is amazing and as I've said before........one of my favorites for sure. Unfortunately if I owned it, it would be clapped out in a couple months due to my non-maintaining ass. Not proud of that. Just stating fact. I know me.

Yeah I'll never have a motor that clean. I have dreams of polish,chrome,annodized, on a krylon budget haha.
Played around with the duplicolor metalcast candy rattle can today, it sprays thin but it's pretty cool stuff
And no that's not the carb I'm running
