Thanks for those leads. :) I will try the Cardiff distributor to find availability or if they do the painting.

A couple of very helpful calls to Autolac and PPC, and found out this stuff ……….. Eastwood Diamond Clear Gloss appears to be the go.

Surface prep, quick polish with fine grit, wash with dishwashing liquid, dry, buff with cloth, spray light coats. Almost too easy ??,.
But …. none in stock, will have to wait a month (?) until new shipment.
Thanks for replies.

I have a similar project on the go and am also looking for a clear coat for aluminium wheels. Thanks for the info on PPC, their product range looks really good, and the Diamond Coat comes in a tin too. It's just too bloody cold to paint anything at home at the moment.

I've got the rattle can, but haven't done it yet. The recommended temps and humidity ranges are not presently good.

I have 500W arlec rectangular lights, which are great for heating up metal for paint....:)

I use a blow heater when spray painting.
