A clear coat is not necessary if you polish and wax a frame properly, but you would have to keep renewing the wax now and than. Not using a clear coat also keeps the weight down and makes for a nicer shine. A clear coat or a powder coat will always diminish some of the shine.

Polished + OptiCoat. Any thoughts about that?
