    Clear on rims

    So I painted my rims black about 2 months ago.they are still holding up nice with no chips or cracks...I didn't clear coat them at the time because it was to humid outside and I did try to clear on rim and it was starting to turn white'ish instead of a glossy black..now the humidy is under 50% and its a nice 60 degrees outside..would clear coating the rim now make it look glossy?I'm using the duplicolor rim paint,and duplicolor clear coat

    I've found the Duplicolor clear spray sucks. I have wrecked so many parts using it with bubbles and it turning milky right out of the can. And that was in all different temps and humidity levels.

    I have had it turn milky when first sprayed on but it dries clear

    Make sure you do NOT mix brands of paint. Since you used dupi-color paint, make sure you stick with dupli-color clear. Mixing brands of paint can cause huge headaches with it not sticking (I sprayed dupli-color over armor-coat primer and the dupli-color just flaked off, even though it was applied the same as all the other things I have painted with all dupli-color with no issues.
