    Need stronger clear coat

    Is there a good product on the market to seal up my armor and bucket that will have a good clear coat and offer stronger protection. I am tired of having to touch up my armor after each day of wear because it picks up scrapes and scratches .

    Thanks
    Tack.

    I have had AWESOME luck with testers DULL COTE. Its not good if your looking for a shiny finish obviously . If you want shiny, I like the enamel stuff. It takes a LONG time to dry though.

    On a side note......why don't you like the scratches? It looks lived in that way

    Some are fine but I have gotten some that just make things look bad. I'll check out the dull cote and the enamel. I mostly want something that will keep things as I made them instead of getting damaged in transport or by rubbing against things like walls and such.

    Also new scratches don't match the old ones. The black wash is not covering the new scratch and they stick out.
