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

The white turned kind of yellow wherever the gas hit and is getting darker as time goes on. Just a word of advice. Next time I'll look for a better clear coat.
I am glad to find this as I was about to go get it to clear coat my whole frame and tank. I would hate to go through all that trouble of getting it to look so nice, to just have it turn yellow. Do you or anyone know of a good strong durable clear coat? I was also thinking about trying the dupli color automotive clear in a can, for spray guns.
