Aluminium oxydation prevention

Can you clear coat aluminium that is scuffed up w a file or wire wheel?

Im thinking since those pieces are off the bike I can just clear them lightly and prevent oxydation?

As long as it is clean you should be good.

I believe aluminum has to be washed with some special chemical for the clear coat or pain to stick.

You likely know this:
But in case you forgot: Avoid cleaning Aluminum or Stainless Steel with a standard wire brush, or any form of carbon steel abrasive.
A steel wire brush (Carbon steel or steel wool,etc) can leave trace iron in the alumimun or SS this trace will then later rust.

The area to be clear coated will look as good as it is- dull, scuffed, polished, whatever- only wet when it dries.
Wet sanding with 1200 grit don't look too bad.
Make sure it looks like you want it too when it's wet and don't use the cheap stuff to coat it, clean it with acetone or better beforehand and it should be fine.
