The grey has a gloss finish, but I did put three coats of clear to add protection. The only black my friend and I could find in the duplicolor was flat so we put clear on it to make it glossy. Flat black looks better, but It's easier to clean mud off with a glossy finish that's why he went glossy.

Anyhow, to answer your question, no you do not have to clear it.

Post pics when ya get it done.

Will do. I may hold off until Spring when it gets warmer as I've found paint seems to cure better in warmer weather and it's not warm right now. Plus, I want to find a way to 'patch up' the scratches and rash my Canyon's have.

Perhaps just some silicon caulk for the deep scratches?

I may use some JBWeld on the lip and sand/file it down to blend better.

Any suggestions for repairing gauges?

Keep moving forward. But keep an eye on history, for if you don't, you are doomed to repeat it.

Don't use silicon. The paint will not bond to it. As a matter of fact don't use anything pliable as it will not sand down smooth to the wheel surface. Use something like bondo or Mar-tex. The latter you get in marine stores. It's for marines repairs, but would work excellent in this application. It sands very well.

I love how that came out with the bright rim.

Now the only problem is finding ravine rims.

Local tire shop wanted 600 for a set of 5 with brand new 30 inch goodyear G(et)S(tuck)A(nywhere)'s

Wouldnt sell me just the rims though

I realize this thread is old as junk, but I am about to do this project using the satin black from Duplicolor. My question is approximately how many cans are needed for the paint and clear coat?
