Recently I ordered an extra carbon fork from the factory in China. I don't really know if it's going to be clearcoated or not.
If not, what's the best way for me to apply a clear finish? I don't have a dust-free indoor paintroom nor do I have spray equipment. So if I'm going to spray, it has to be outdoors hanging from a tree
So there's probably a rattle-can clear paint. Is it possible to use a brush-on clear "paint" (lacquer?) of some kind, applying several layers with steelwool or such in between to give a nice deep glow? Perhaps rattle-canning just the top coat. I seem to lack the ability to spraypaint without runs.
What would the typical auto body shop charge for this service?
