Finally some more progress. It was nice outside yesterday and I had some spare clear coat rattle cans laying around.
So, I skipped the idea of taking the plastics to a shop and did it myself.

Dont have any pics of clear coating process but here, they are, all finished up and in my bedroom. Ah, sweet smell of clear..

So the spray on clear coat is all that you put on after the stickers? How does it appear to be holding?

Don't forget to sticker bomb your helmet, so it matches the bike!

Maybe it does but that would look more awful on plain colors or light colors in particular. I had no problems doing on my red plastics that are on the bike now.

They still look the same red to me. NO fading or yellow tint

Got to the helmet today. Yeah, it kinda looks LAME IMO. Have to still clear coat it tomorrow.

Any ideas to make it look better??
