    is there such a thing?

    i'm a stickler for the fuel tank to be painted to match the frame.
    i used Rust-o-leum hammered finish on Creep (my blue racer), and it dried super-hard. the only spray can-type i've found that holds up very well to fuel overspill, also. BUT the bike i'm building now is an odd color, and i have to use a different kind.

    is there a brand/type clear coat in a spray can, that wont smudge up if gas gets on it?

    will hi-temp do the trick?

    I don't know about clear coat- but I have standard Rustoleum paint on my tank, have spilled gas on it, and no problems. However, it cured for weeks- probably 3 or 4- before I put gas in it. That was because of my schedule for the build, but it seemed to work.
