It is resistant to anything you'll ever put in a motorized bicycle fuel tank and gives a good shiny finish to the DupliColor.
Interesting regarding the Lustercoat. Is it available at most hobby shops? I'm curious as to the durability and why it would be so, probably for the type of fuel for little planes?
Maybe wanna try to recoat my rustoleum clear with some of that. Hmmm.
Thankx for the tip
