Raw aluminum body

I came across a raw s5 body. I was wondering if it's bad to leave it raw because I quite like the look
of raw aluminum. I know anodized aluminum is a bit stronger/more resistant to scratches but I'm thinking
I'd just wet-sand off all the scratches when it gets bad enough. Anyone see a problem with this?

I'm mainly using it as my autococker and not a pump so I don't think I need to keep the internal polished.

Also, will clear anodizing keep the raw look but make it more durable?

Any insight will be greatly appreciated.

Clear anno is as close to raw is you're going to get. I would anno it for it's protective attributes, but it's up to the user.

anodizing actually is a oxidation that makes the surface of the aluminum harder. This reduces wear, scratching, and dings. If you keep it raw you will notice excessive wear and damage. You can get clear anodizing which isnt really "clear" its just plain aluminum oxide with no dye's
