Protecting Paint on NP Zero?

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I picked up the 54" N/P Zero at the Toledo show last April and this one is planned to go on the build table in the fall or winter. One of the problems is the stock paint appears very dull and likely not very durable.

With the intended Saito 62 that paint will be directly exposed to raw fuel and exhaust and I was wondering if anyone had experience with this plane under these conditions. If not, anyone have a clear coat that is compatible and fuel proof? Most of our ECO paints now commonly available don't seem to tolerate fuel at all.
I know there's money in aviation........I put it there!

If you were closer, I would spray some automotive Urethane on for you.

You can fly Hitec or use the other "low tech" stuff!!
