I would imagine the prototype is painted thus would suggest paint. You could try alternatives like the various firearms coatings or powder coats. The idea being a very long and wear resistant life. An engine built this nice deserves to be finished in a way that will last as long as the engine.

By the way just checked in on this thread after a few months of not visiting. All i can say is wow! Seriously you have made considerable progress here and the parts look awesome.
