Default Re: Best Rattle Can Paint I Have Found Yet!

So what is a good clear coat, resistant to gasoline? I'm working on two gas tanks right now, nothing fancy, but I'd like for them to keep looking nice. The guy at Napa told me that until it cures it will not tolerate gasoline. I asked how long it would take to cure and he said three to four months. Not so good. I guess if I did the clear coat right at the end of the season for riding (when snow and zero temps kill any fun on a bicycle) and let it sit through the winter then it would be ready in the spring, but something a little quicker would be nice.
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
