What do you all use to keep your engines looking like new, asking more specifically what you use to keep the black cowling looking good and keep it from fading over time?

I use an automotive buffing wheel set from 3m.  I use the white pads on a polisher with heavy buffing compound and follow up with black pads and a product called "Finesse-It" that is a polishing compound.  After the buffing and polishing, I apply a high quality carnuba wax paste and buff by hand.  Looks like new afterwards, maybe even better.
