Is this Dupli-Color that you used a spray can enamel? I painted my accessories with a spray can enamel : Rust-Oleum “Gloss Protective Enamel” 7747 Sunburst Yellow and they look bright and shiny. I'm still restoring the frame and body so I'm in no hurry.

Since these parts are subject to getting fuel and grease on them I'm trying to figure out how to protect them.I started another thread asking about this and everybody says that urethane will lift the enamel coat.

Does gas and oil mess up your Dupli-color paint?
