That's how I would try it. Have seen bare metal cars with clear coat.

A good clear coat will do it. Either gloss or matte gloss. I use a lot of the matte when I want to keep the patina look to it and it looks to be locked in time.

Many of the restorers of older farm equipment give it a coat of linseed oil or linseed and turpentine mix to preserve.
He should do some research on preserving both metal and wood with linseed oil to see if it's what he would want to have as a finished product.

Or he could paint with aluminum paint. Some aluminum paints are real shiny.
