What did you use for the clear coat?
after i rubbed the paint back to nude carbon, after some deliberation about D.I.Y in the end i sent the frame away to argos cycles in UK for clearcoat and decals.

It looks stunning with low profile rims, but Lightweights are a bit poshy for Athena groupset none the less.
But I totally like love what you did with old and not so good looking frameset.
