No sealer or anything needed. I did my daily driver door handles several years ago and have done nothing to them and they look the same today as they did when I finished polishing them.

I may not have ended up where I intended to go, but I know I've ended up where I'm intended to be...starting out with nothing and still having most of it left!

No, no sandpaper or chemicals doing that will only strip the surface of the material you're trying to transform.

You need to buff them out with a metal buffer wheel and pad with some compound or a dremel like tool with compound. Use the most aggressive compound you can as it's very time consuming.
