Clear Coat Question

Recommended Posts

Hey guys I searched the forums but couldn't find the answer. I'm new to clear coating and am not sure if I should clear coat the body before or after I paint the chrome trim. Not sure the chrome will stick after the clear. Thanks!

Not really sure if you are painting the chrome with a regular chrome-type paint or if you are using Alclad or one of the Molotow chrome pens.  If regular chrome paint (Testors, etc) than clear over the top of it is ok, however clear will take the luster off of Alclad and I have heard will cause the Molotow chrome to run.  Hope this helps.
