Default WorldTex....seal it?

Anyone have any experience with Worldtex covering and gas powered planes? The fabric seems 'open' and will accept dirt, oil, etc.....should it be painted with some Polyurathrane clear before flying?

It is not really necessary to paint it but: I would as it collects dirt in the weave very well that is hard to clean out. Solartex and Colortex have the same problem. That said, Solartex is still my favorite covering as it goes on easier, goes around compound curves, holds better at seams and overlaps and is much stronger than the films. A topcoat does help immensely though for keeping it looking nice.
