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?
I have sprayed catalyzed urethane over most everything and have never had a problem. I even put a drip of urethane hardener in my Testors model enamel to harden it and that works great. Try it on a test piece, I think you will have no problems. That is the only thing that will preserve your rattle can paint job.
