Just follow the directions on the label. But keep in mind that any coating, paint, powder coat, chrome etc. will only be as smooth as the sub (base) surface. You can't hide sins with paint.
The smoother, defect free, that you can make the surface the better the finish will come out. With bare metal even very small scratches will show and can even be amplified by a clear coat. Also a dust free atmosphere is essential, and in the warmer weather, bug free.
