clear

just woundering if you can clear coat bare metal for the metal look without it rusting. or would you have to get it painted crome.
i think this would look awsome since u dont see it ever.

I clear coated a bare metal Air Cleaner on a Goldwing once. It lasted for about a month, then it started to peel. A buddy of mine clear coated a stainless motor cycle tank, but he used a clear epoxy flooring chemical, airbrushed a graphic then cleared coated the whole thing with Deltron. It's still running around as far as I know.

Clears actually stick pretty good to bare steal and aluminum but the problem is they have no tolerance for oxides or corrosion.
So if cleaned perfect clear might stick for 1 week to a year at best.
I have an aluminum rack I made for rover and over the last 4 years
I have gotten the clear to last 6-9 months, nice part is when it peels all you need is an air gun to strip the rest off. and reclear again.
