I have just finished applying the third coat of 20 minute finish epoxy on my outrigger tub, after the epoxy dries I will lightly wet sand the tub and would like to spray it with clear. Any suggestions on which clear I can use.
Thanks
Doug

I use a 2 part automotive clear and spray with a small jam gun, but it depends on what type of equipment you have. Very fuel resistant when cured.

I have used Klass Kote epoxy for years and it holds up to Gas and Nitro fuel.

For $20.00 you can get automotive 2k clear coat in a spray rattle can that works great!!!!!!!!You can also use Rust OLeum paint that comes in all kinds of colors even metal flake to use with the 2k clear coat. Paint on your colors....even in your fuel bay,engine bay & bait box. When colors dry & cannot smell the Rust Oleum Paint anymore...then spray on your 2k clear coat. When dry you will have a mirror shine & 100% water & fuel proof protection. Must sand in between colors.

SprayMax 2K looks like very good product! I'm curious how it matches up to other popular 2-part epoxy finishes like Klass Kote (in terms of high-nitro fuel proof resilliance)?

2k will stand up to it like a brick wall.
