So I am  assuming that Noalux is conductive and I can do the entire
length of the  elements.

Hi Bob,
Just use the Noalux where the elements come together. Don't put it on the  
entire element!
The stuff is sticky and will make a mess out of your cleaned up antenna  once 
all the dirt sticks to the Noalux... Yuck.
DO NOT use steel wool !!! Get a Scotch-Brite. The steel wool will leave  
really little pieces of steel all over the antenna. You may not be able to see  
the little pieces when you're finished polishing, but you'll sure see them when 
they rust - And rust they will.
I don't know if using alcohol to clean it will make any difference, but it  
shouldn't hurt anything. There is a polishing cloth out there that is gold  
colored - I can't remember the name, but I got one at the local Harley  dealer. 
Makes the antenna SHINE like chrome :-) and stays shiny for a long  time, but 
eventually it will go back to dull. The RF won't care what the antenna  looks 
like, only that the joints are a solid connection.
Get to work with a Scotch-Brite es GL with your project!
