For Hard Boy NASCARs, What Clear-coat do You Recommend To Protect the Decals?


Recommended Posts

I've done 3 Hardbody NASCARS so far. Two I did all Tamiya (primer, base coat and clear over the decals) and one I did with Testors Extreme Wet Look Lacquer.

The Tamiya cars both seemed to hold however, both cars got wrecked in crashes. One pretty much exploded into a dozen pieces... but the decals held under the clearcoat.

I tried Testors. The car looked great but as soon as I removed my first lane sticker from the hood, most of the decal went with it... Then from hitting the walls the decals fell off. Almost like it had no clear coat.

Is Tamiya the best? Or perhaps I should try Krylon or Duplicolor?
