Default Clearcoat for a cowling - Nitro engine


I just painted a fiberglass cowl using Createx airbrush paint. I need to clearcoat it to make it fuelproof (nitro engine)

Can anyone suggest something that is easy to find (spray can type...), high gloss if possible?

I want to avoid having to spend big $$$ to get the "real" automotive clearcoat if I don't have to.

Thank you!

HI, you can use a 2k clear coat for nitro fuel proof. It also comes in spray cans but remember that you can use it all the contents once it is activated, so you can prepare all your paint job that needs to do, and then clear coat it.


Amazon carries it.
