Voxace that look pretty good, did you use normal acrylic clear to seal it? Does it stay on even with the engine heat?

I didn't seal it, I had nightmares of it going crap. It only needs a quick polish every month or so.

They all look very nice and i might give it a go but not sure about spraying a clear coat to seal it, as the engine heat might make it go all hazy and white over time.

And without sealing it, constant polishing would prolly be needed to keep up the finish.... which way should i go?
