Wink Re: Clear coating raw steel on the cheap?

Reading this and looking at your build Maurtis, it strikes me that your unpainted bike looks a great deal like mine painted with chrome paint, I just wrote quite a bit about in the "Painted motor" thread here- there's a picture there.

Anyway the chrome paintr will give just as shiney a look, will cover the blemishes and protect the frame and can also be then clearcoated- a large spray can iis about $5-

Some is more "chromey" than others- I recommend Red Devil at Big Lots over the less shiney Krylon at wal-Mart- but theres a lot of it retailling out there these days- I even use it on my car- tailpipe and muffler to keep rust away
