Good Afternoon Chitown Anglers-

I am in need of a recommendation for a good clear coat to use on a re-painted reel I have. I do not own an airbrush, and the guy that painted it for me said that the clear coat he has will probably not stand up to reel-wear. He said he'd finish the reel once we figured out which clear coat to use. Also, where can I find said clear coat in person? I've done a little digging, and it seems like I'll have to pay just as much or more for shipping as I will for the paint if I order online.

Thanks in Advance
Pannie

Every custom painted reel I've seen was claimed to be coated in automotive clear. Just about any auto parts store carries some clear coat. Not sure on the quality though. If you're out in the south 'burbs, stop in Eastwood in Alsip. They carry a lot of car paint and their guys are pretty knowledgeable.
