    Clear lacquer is to give it a fresh surface prevents slipping prolongs life etc, use gt85 ptfe or a dry ptfe spray to lubricate.

    I've used all of them, including the Gardiner one - they don't last long, personally I wouldn't bother, just clean then sections and put back together, within a week all that ptfe spray is rubbed off...
