The white turned kind of yellow wherever the gas hit and is getting darker as time goes on. Just a word of advice. Next time I'll look for a better clear coat.
Tom, You are exactly right, the Dupli color clear coat cannot take the fuel being spilled on it. That happened to my green bike. I was really happy with the way the tank came out, until I dripped a little gas on it. It became sticky as soon as the gas hit it, then dulled it and discolored it.
No more Dupli color clear coat for me.
