Default Re: Clear coating raw steel on the cheap?

After days of stripping, grinding, and sweating, I gave up on being an exotic dancer... uh... I mean I gave up on the idea of just clearing over raw steel. I just could not get a consistent enough finish to where I would not get mad at myself every time I saw it a little down the road.

Here she was today after getting the last bit of paint off and after a little buffing with the polishing wheel and rouge:

It is supposed to storm over the next few days, so once it clears up I will polish off the layer of rust that will surely have formed, and the put on a coat of primer. Still trying to decide on a color. Maybe black like my Cranny was, maybe bright silver? Paisley? Maybe...
