  • DupliColor Clear on tank

    So I inadvertently picked up the 2 enamel clears and 2 lacquer clears and went back to Advanced to switch them out. Well Advance was out of the enamel clear so I tried Autozone...out too. Then I went by O'Rielly's and they were out as well. Then I started looking at the shelves hoping the Duplicolor Enamel would be hidden behind some other color in the wrong spot, but nothing. I asked the guy working did they have any more in the back and replied no. So then he said you can use the DupliColor High Heat Engine Enamel clearthe same you would as the other clear. He said it will just resist up to 500 degrees. So, it just so happens that the next piece to clear was the tank. I looked on the back of the can to make sure all of the instructions were the same and then I saw on the can where the Duplicolor High Heat Engine Enamel clear was made to resist GAS and OIL. I remember several people noting that the regular clear would not resist gas so I thought this might be a fair option. Anyway I spayed the entire can on the tank, only about 3-4 coats, and when finish I will give an entire write-up on my experience rattle canning the Katana.

        Do not use!!!!

        DO NOT USE!!!! The high temp enamel clear reacted with the Acrylic Enamel and gave the white tank a yellow haze over my pure white tank. I was so ****ed. DO NOT USE.

              The engine clear is not resistant to gas... regardless what they say.
              I know many people that have used it because it says its gas resistant but its not.
              that why on the dupli-color site they say to clear with 2 part auto clear on motorcycle tanks... if the engine clear worked they would recommend that instead.
