Here is what I used, didn't have any of the silver left.
The polish and the resin are bottled, the final resin 'coat' as I called it, is applied with a soft cloth and leaves a hardened protective film over the paint.

Be careful with fuel spillages on the tank Alan, that Acrylic lacquer will just dissolve.
The Auto Glym will wash off with petrol too.

I think you get 2K lacquer in a spray tin now (fuel resistant). I have never used rattlecans except for 'Weld to Weld Through' zinc primer.

Cheers Gav, I'm always pretty careful putting fuel in, although I once spilled diesel all over it when I realised and panicked, non went in the tank though haha.

See above ^ Resin Polish.
This is applied in single strokes of the cloth, not rubbed in! and is left for half hour, then you buff it off, it doesn't last for ever but is very easy to apply.

Just want to say thanks. Hit all parts with 500 wet before painting. It's the first time I ever shot clear and considering I shot everything outside, no garage or anything, they came out pretty darn good. I picked up some good 1500-2000 and 2500. That should take care of the debris that floated into the paint. In order to paint, I had to dig out my big ol 60 gallon compressor, and wouldn't you know it, that was leaking on the bottom of the tank. I had to borrow my friends welder to fix that before I could even move on. Man what a pia today was!

Somehow I missed this post... I've never seen any of these products nor have I tried painting with acrylic spray. Interesting, I'd like to try it.
