I had my Savvy corners on for a week until I got the rockers installed and people kept asking me why half of my Jeep was not painted. So, I pulled them off and had all the parts powder coated black since I have a black Jeep. I suppose if one were to polish the aluminum or buff it with Scotchbrite it might be okay but in the end, I am glad I went with the powder coat.
I think clearcoat alone on steel will be a problem as the lack of a sealing and rust resistant primer underneath would promote rust at every scratch.
