Wow that's a lot of sanding!

Have you ever tried just sanding with say 120,180 220 and 320 sandpaper and a few buffing and polishing compounds?

Ever one seems to say that but I personally find that to be unture unless you call once ever 2 years or so constant.

My car is not a daily drive so typically I only put 6k to 8k on my car a year.
I will however be the first to admit that I do get some dust on my polished parts but I've never seen any grime or grime build up which typically is do to oily residue.
I usually wipe down the polish parts on my engine and engine bay ever other time I wash my car, and that takes me 5 mins at most and why I said it's not time consuming. In the 10 years after I polished all the parts I've only re polished all those parts with a polishing paste twice which is time comsuming, but twice in 10 years I can handle that.
