Hold up! Before you buy that! Let me get you to the link, I found some awesome gas proof stuff that I painted my tank with!

Edit: here's the link

This stuff works great, applies well, looks amazingly smooth, nice and glossy. Best of all it's gas proof, I ruined a few Rust-Oleum paint jobs before finding it.

u/HyJenx · 8 pointsr/bikewrench

Pretty much anything that you can buy at a big box store will fail fairly quickly.

Your best bet for a clear finish would probably be an automotive clear coat. These are 2-part catalyzed finishes that hold up very well, but are a little pricey.

Here is one option.

I have not used this particular brand, but it seems to get high reviews.

If you want color on your bike, look for local powder coaters. It can be done for a couple hundred dollars, and will last forever.

u/RazorLeafAttack · 8 pointsr/Gameboy

In the custom GameCube controller community the use of a high end clear coat called USC Spray Max 2K High Gloss is strongly recommended. It’s designed for automotive use and worth noting—it’s very toxic and the can needs to be used within 48 hours before it cures in the can. The second most recommended option is Rustoleum 2x clear gloss which has worked well for me, is much cheaper, it isn’t a specialty product, and doesn’t need to be used within a 2 day window.

u/Escabrera · 8 pointsr/MechanicalKeyboards

Let me just get the safety information since that's super important and a discord server has is on command
>Clear coat
The most commonly used & recommended clear coat here is the USC Spray Max 2K High Gloss Clearcoat found here:
It is also available in Matte and Semi-Gloss and all three types are highly recommended. In general, 2K clear coats will hold up much better than 1K, and will protect your work for years. Use of a standard 1K clearcoat will result in a finish that will wear off extremely quickly from use and leave you with a ruined paintjob.
Note: A couple things you need to know about USC 2K and all other 2K clearcoats.

>1. USC Spray Max 2K has a roughly 48 hour pot life. After this window has passed the clear coat will be unusable, so it's recommended you clear coat in batches.

>2. A can can typically cover 3 controllers, 3.5/4 if you're good about spraying efficiently.

>3. You must use safety equipment when using any 2k clearcoat. 2K clearcoats are HIGHLY TOXIC!*
3a. Wear a respirator, goggles, gloves, and a full body paint suit (preferably with a hood).
3b. Use light layers and work outdoors or in a professionally ventilated workshop (i.e. dedicated garage).
3c. Do not spray or leave to cure in an area where people or pets can breathe the fumes. This includes the full cure time as 2k gives off dangerous fumes until fully cured. Even very light exposure can make you sick.

>Please use the command !ccsafety to see more information
CustomGCC staff and members are NOT RESPONSIBLE if anything goes wrong.

!ccsafety info
Most painters in CustomGCC use the 3M Disposable Organic Vapor Respirator or similar, found here:
The cartridges on this mask are nonreplaceable and have a max use time of 8 hours before they're inneffective in protecting you, this means you must replace this mask every 8 hours of active use.
The filters also get used up just sitting around in the open air, so make sure you store it in an airtight bag between uses if you want to get the full 8 hours out of it.

>For a re-usable mask and replacement filters these are good options:


>Other Necessary Protection
Make sure to wear safety goggles, nitrile or similar gloves, and wear long sleeves/pants to prevent the 2k getting on your skin. Any clothes worn while spraying should be immediately changed out of and washed to prevent any chemical being absorbed by your skin.
A Tyvek paint suit is highly recommended:

u/punkonjunk · 7 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

just as an FYI, that topcoat is garbo and won't last as long as you'd like. this stuff is amazing:

BUT very toxic, and you must wear a good mask with it, like this one at a minimum.

the customGCC community also dabbles in pro controllers and joycons and is an amazing learning resource if you are looking for more information on doing this, and doing custom buttons as well! I have learned SO MUCH about painting in just the last couple months I've been there.

u/mrmattolsen · 5 pointsr/mazda3
u/nakedrickjames · 5 pointsr/Cartalk

Usually that's because once you clean them up, you've polished / sanded off the UV protectant that's on the exterior. You can simply re-spray a decent quality clearcoat on the outside and they should last quite a while.

u/AwesomeArachnid · 5 pointsr/cars

I made this diagram, not to scale of course.

My theory is that if there's enough healthy base coat left under the oxidization, you can VERY carefully sand off the damaged clear coat and base coat then just spray more clear coat over it, you would have a slight variation in color from the base coat that has been exposed to the elements to the newly uncovered base coat but once it's clear coated it shouldn't be too noticeable and is definitely an improvement over oxidized and failing clear coat.

I'd approach it by masking off the exposed base coat while I got rid of the messed up clear coat, then removing the masking tape and very carefully sanding the base coat. I'd wetsand with 1000 grit for pretty much everything since it will cut relatively slowly and make it more difficult to take too much off. The main risk is taking too much base coat off while sanding the edges of the damaged clear coat, hence the masking tape.

If it turns out that the base coat is damaged all the way through or you accidentally sand too much, then you'd need to get some paint in a rattle can to try to match the factory color, this could either be Duplicolor, custom mixed stuff from a website like, or you might be able to find a shop that would match it for you. None of which is going to be perfect so I would probably opt for one of the first two choices.

Either way, the area you are working with needs to be sanded with 1000 grit, so after you finished that you would spray the new matchedish basecoat on and try to blend the edges as best you can, then give it a week or so to dry because otherwise you can get some nasty interactions between the paint and the clear. After that week or so you would then sand the newly sprayed basecoat with 1000 grit. You can drive the car after letting the base coat dry for a few hours though.

At this point all you need to do is spray the clear, so if you had to wait for new basecoat to dry you would clean the area very well then wipe it down with alcohol, then spray a 2k automotive clear coat such as this over the area. For very large areas it starts to lose it's cost effectiveness, but if you have access to a compressor and paint gun it could be fairly economical.

You also don't have to clear coat an entire panel, you can mask off just the area to clear coat then sand and buff the line out, but unless the clear coat line is on a body line then it can be very difficult to make the transition seemless without sanding too much off.

Keep in mind that this is just a theory I've come up with over the course of spraying the Integra in a carport wrapped in plastic then attempting various paint repairs in my driveway/garage. It's also worth noting that on metallic paint jobs, if you have to spray any new base coat it will absolutely look wrong, and if it's pearl you can forget about it. I had a bad spot on the door of a silver Civic I had a few years ago, in the end it looked alot better but it was pretty apparent if you looked closely.

u/corgismorgii · 5 pointsr/motorcycles

Gasoline drips will ruin ur clear coat if u use Rustoleum clear.


You need 2K Clear Coat (Epoxy 2 part clear coat). Its gasoline resistant basically. 1 Can did my SV650 gas tank to perfect gloss.

proper paint spray mask recommended

u/CaptainJamesMaySlow · 4 pointsr/AutoDetailing

Clear coat provides protection over the headlight after sanding/polishing. I used this after restoring my headlights, came out real nice.®-Glamour-Gloss-Aerosol-Usc-3680061/dp/B0043B7UQY

u/rvlvrlvr · 3 pointsr/bicycling

You could probably get a set of these from ebay in white (or whatever color you want) and stick the small ones on the front of your levers. Maybe scuff up the finish of the levers first, apply the decals, and then spray on a clear-coat (having taped off everything else, of course) to get it to stay on there without being rubbed off.

I've used this aerosol-spray clearcoat to great effect when I stripped and re-finished the frame of my Trek 5200 (before, after). Problem with this product, however, is that it is a two-part aerosol and thus has a usable time of about 48 hours from the time that you puncture the inner chamber to start mixing it. So it's kind of a waste if all you're clear-coating is just the levers...

u/stinkycretingurl · 3 pointsr/motorcycles

every single time i overfill my tank or get drops of fuel on mine i say a little thank you prayer to spraymax 2k. i CANNOT imagine what my bike would look like without that clear coat. i have had gas just pour down the side of the tank before. spraymax 2k is the shit.

u/lkmartin · 3 pointsr/customGCC

Hey! The best thing to do is to apply some form of protectant. This Glossy Clear coat spray is pretty well-used in the community, just be careful to spray in a well ventilated area/ use a respirator, since this stuff is pretty dangerous if inhaled.

u/FYWGI67 · 3 pointsr/motorcycles

I did a rattle can on my motorcycle. Here's an album of the whole process. Rattle Can Paint Job I think it turned out pretty well. The end step should be using a 2 part clear coat that is resistant to fuel, they have some that comes in a spray can too. it worked well for me.

I used this page as a resource

Edit: this is the clear coat I used

u/CalZeta · 3 pointsr/motorcycles

2k two-part clear coat seems to be what you're looking for. It's not cheap, but will withstand exposure to gasoline from what I've read.

u/Bengbab · 3 pointsr/motorcycles

You can't use standard rattle can clear coat. I did first time and had same issue. I then learned about 2k clearcoats (2 part epoxy coat in a rattle can). It's def gas proof.

Here's my bike before/after:

u/RandyDanderson · 3 pointsr/AutoDetailing
u/tmluna01 · 3 pointsr/MouseReview

You can mask off certain areas if you like. Also, try 2k spray as a top coat for maximum durability.

u/moelost · 2 pointsr/motorcycles

I used Spray Max 2k urethane clear over regular Rustoleum or Duplicolor acrylic enamel paint. It actually turned out really good. The 2K Urethane spray can really comes out well and ends up looking like a total professional paint job for much, much less.

Note: the urethane clear needs to be sprayed in a very well ventilated area and you MUST wear a protective mask and goggles. The stuff is super toxic. But you'll read all about it because the can is basically one huge warning label.

u/Zombie650 · 2 pointsr/AutoDetailing

This is a catalyzed 2k urethane clear not much different from what you would spray out of a gun. I've used their primer (which worked excellent) but not the clear as of yet ( I use cheap harbor freight hvlp guns). You mix the clear and reducer by pressing a button on the can before you use it (one time use). Pretty space age for rattle can, and will be infinitely more durable than non-catalyzed clears.

USC Spray Max 2k High Gloss Clearcoat Aerosol

u/kousun12 · 2 pointsr/motorcycles

I also spray painted my r6, and used this for the gas tank. It's full 2k clear in a can with hardener that activates when you push the button on the bottom, so you can spill all the gasoline you want on the tank and it'll still be okay! :D

u/ExcerptMusic · 2 pointsr/Luthier

Basically. Think of the paint and clear as pieces of clear paper. You just keep stacking it. You have your primer, paint, paint, then clear, then sparkles, then clear, clear, clear, clear.

The more clear, the more depth. Too much clear and it starts to get hazy, unless you wet sand really well between coats.

Also do yourself a HUGE favor and get this spray clear. Once you use the hardener, you have 48 hours to spray more coats which is plenty of time.

u/stillrusting · 2 pointsr/carmodification

This stuff is slick. Use a respirator.

Spraymax 3680061 2K Clear

u/deusnefum · 2 pointsr/3Dprinting

Filling, sanding, priming (and repeating that process a few times), and then painting and then putting a catalyzed clear coat would make this look like the real deal.

u/MatteBlack12 · 2 pointsr/customcontrollers

Looks great! If you want to take it a step further, I recommend using an automotive clear coat like this one. I made my first controller a few days ago, and it made a big difference. Here’s how it came out. (Note that fumes are toxic, hold your breath or use a respirator.)

u/ngostout · 2 pointsr/DIY

This stuff is pretty good at making damn near anything glossy.

It's also really tough and holds up nicely in weather of all sorts and sun; I use it on my motorcycle builds. Best of all it drys fast. But be warned, it is toxic, so use a mask and do it in a WELL ventilated area. Also make sure you keep the helmet spotless clean before you apply it because it will seal everything in permanently.

u/Boogieman065 · 2 pointsr/Trackdays

>Is there a good way to go about getting custom graphics for my new bike? The owner had put stuff on the bike that just isn't me, and wanting to find out how to make it my own.

Most cost efficient track bike only owners use rattle cans. Look into spray painting/decals and using 2K clearcoat to seal it. If you're patient, the results can be real close to what professionals will do for you.

>At what point are tire warmers actually necessary? I got a pair with the bike, but haven't ever used them.

They help prevent your tires from going through multiple unnecessary heat cycles. It'll preserve the material. The use of warmers is more important if you're on track slicks than street tires, as track tires are not designed to go through many heat cycles. Track tires also provide very little grip when "cold" to the point where it could be dangerous for the first few laps.

>Im in California and my local tracks are Sonoma Raceway and Thunderhill.

Awesome sauce! I'm in Sacramento and I'll be at Thunderhill September 16th.

u/SearingPhoenix · 2 pointsr/Nerf

I've used this to good effect.

u/rsmjr · 1 pointr/AutoDetailing

Really matters what type of paint you are using. But I'd always wait exactly what it says on the can if not longer. Especially for sanding purposes. For clear coat I'd try to find 2 part clear coat that is activated. That is closer to professional pant then your run of the mill stuff which isn't exactly meant to be on a car and in harsh environments. I have had super good luck with finding good stuff on amazon. Example

It is only good for 48 hours. Though I'd plan the paint to be as fast and soon as possible.

u/superpopcone · 1 pointr/AutoDetailing

I have clear coat damage on a car that I would like to slow/stop (right now, I'm unable to commit time/effort to a proper sand down + repaint + re-coat).

From watching DIY clear coat repair videos, is it correct for me to assume that I can just go ahead and apply this 2K clear coat aerosol directly over the damaged area to prevent it from getting worse?

As I understand it, future repairs would just require removal of the clear coat anyway. Please let me know if any of the above assumptions are wrong.

u/pandito_flexo · 1 pointr/Lexus

Did you use a separate clearcoat to seal? This is what I ended up using and it's fantastic.

u/SuperiorSoobie · 1 pointr/MechanicAdvice

More than I remember but about $15 if you buy 6

u/phataaron · 1 pointr/AutoDetailing
u/theuautumnwind · 1 pointr/AutoDetailing

I suspect that this would be superior to the one that chrisfix suggests. I have seen this used to protect restored/candied/tinted taillights.

u/MSD0 · 1 pointr/pcmods

You can get 2k clear coat in an aerosol can if you don’t have a spray gun. You have to use the contents within 48 hours after it’s been activated, so it’s best to do everything at once. It’s a good idea to wear a respirator (not a dust mask) when spraying.

u/Regs2 · 1 pointr/mazda3

This product is recommended as a coating on r\detailing.

u/PmMePicsOfCereal · 1 pointr/Miata

Details on the paint:

I bought pre-mixed aerosol cans of basecoat from Automotive Touchup, paint code M8.

Clear coat is USC Spray Max 2k High Gloss Clearcoat purchased through Amazon.

I ended up using 4 cans of base and 2 cans of clear. My technique still needs some work, I ended up spraying too thin and taking more coats than I should have. This lead to some fish eyes which came out pretty well after wet-sanding and polishing. The basecoat color match seems close and I would recommend it, but know that their west coast shipping speed is pretty slow. It took around 2 weeks total from ordering to delivery.

u/rbrandonc · 1 pointr/CafeRacers

No, but I used this one. It's a two part epoxy spray, so it's gas proof as well

u/pet_the_puppy · 1 pointr/Miata

Nope, painted black. Mirrors were finished with SprayMax 2K. Door handles were sprayed black after this photoshoot, actually.

u/onewheeldrive619 · 1 pointr/CafeRacers

Yeah it's Autozone automotive color in a can and Eastwood 2K epoxy two part clear in a can. To be honest, I didn't do enough prep on my first effort and you could see some imperfections in the tank so I stripped it and started over. With the right amount of primer/filler and careful sanding, I'm amazed how good the finished product looks. A little bike tank and covers is easy. I can't believe people paint whole cars with rattle cans!

u/maaseyracer · 1 pointr/motorcycles

This is the clear I use. It is awesome spray can, 2 part mix. Gasoline resistant:

The results are incredible especially with a cut an polish. Great for smaller jobs and those who do not have a spray gun. Pro tip: buy a good mask this stuff is awful.

u/alpoverland · 1 pointr/motorcycles

This guy's right. Scratches will come one faster than you can imagine too. Nice work still, and congrats on the patience.

If you do consider clearing there's this 2k clear in a can, legit stuff. Though you'll need at least three coats and it adds up. If you've got a buddy with a compressor and a spray gun you can put on a lot more coats for less money when buying a tin.

u/red_delicious · 1 pointr/motorcycles

I haven't tried it yet, but from what I can tell, USC Spray Max 2k High Gloss Clearcoat Aerosol is "gasproof"

u/Your_Brain_On_Pizza · 1 pointr/motorcycles

This is what I used on my repaint. Holding up great so far!

u/ScepKo23 · 1 pointr/customcontrollers

You can buy waterslide paper on amazon. There are two options, clear and white. As for clear coat, it is recommended to use a two part urethane clear. I personally use this for clear coating but be warned it is harmful if you breath in the spray so wear protective masks and spray outside if you can.

u/hd200 · 0 pointsr/scooters

Yes it does. It's a two part system that you puncture a bladder and shake like hell.
