Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

I went to ChinaMart to get some Krylon clear coat spray paint since I used Krylon white on the misc. parts.
They were out of stock.
I went to Lowes and all they had was Valspar brand in clear. I asked the guy at the paint counter if it would be compatible with the Krylon I used. He said yes, no problems with them.
Sprayed it on my battery holder and instant wrinkle city! Ruined the paint on it immediately.
After inventing a few new words for the English language I decided to forgo clear coating any of the parts and installed the handlebars. I will wax the parts later for protection from the elements.

Damm guy at the counter.... Appears to know very little about paint and he is the one that sells the paint.....
