There are many threads...on stripping the coating off exterior of AS.
Look up Nyalic. I learned about it on the forums. It is a bit "grabbier" when you slide your hand over it, but it blends well, you can't see a difference straight on.
A "clear coat" like a car has, may be preferred. Your call.
Once stripped of the coating you will be able to "resurface" but not "shine" like the older Alclad built models. Then coat with your preferred coating.
Being able to "repair" the inevitable "spots" that will happen, should also be considered.
Peace and Blessings..
