Clearcoat for chrome

Recommended Posts

I'm looking into trying to chrome some baits. I have the spazstix mirror chrome. I also have foiled a few baits as well as painted holographic baits from Predator bass baits. I clearcoat with Devcon 2 ton epoxy but this makes the foil lose its flash. Does anyone have any ideas?

Number one, call Spazstix and ask them.

Number two, a clear acrylic that won't yellow, like the water based finish used for maple floors.

Number three, try Rustoleum X2 Clear Gloss.  It seems to make the colors pop  on my cranks, but I haven't tried it on a chrome paint yet.  It's $6 for a spray can, so it won't hurt too bad if it doesn't work for your chrome.  It'll still work for other color cranks, two coats.

Thanks, I might try the Rustoleum first. The Devcon makes it look milky or waxy.
