Thanks all!

I dunno what kind of clear coat you used, but the majority of rattle can clears are not able to withstand gasoline. The one I always recommend (and have used for years) is Spraymax 2k Clear.

Thanks for the recommendation! I'll absolutely pick some of that up and clear coat at the very least my gas tank again, and possibly other parts. I appreciate the advice!

Actually I am very disappointed in how anything stands up to gasoline. Not powdercoating not paint, nothing really does.
Cool.

ain't that the truth! and the more careful you try to be the more likely you are to have a spill  :icon_rolleyes: :icon_lol: i've seen petrol resistant lacquer in a few shops but i think it's got slightly different characteristics in that it goes cloudy quite quickly with UV so it forever needs a polish... from what I've heard anyway.
