Clear coat for dashes

DashQ: What type of clear coating do you recommend shooting on a polished aluminum dash panel? I want to keep it looking polished without having to hand-rub to remove the dull tarnish before every show.– Donnie McGill, Columbus, Ohio 

A: You could do either an automotive clear coat or do a clear powder coat. The clear powder coat will be a more durable finish, in my opinion. Either way you do it, the coating will make it have a little duller finish than if it was just polished, but it still looks good and holds up well. – Andy Gobel, Outlaw Customs
