    I bought a KO Minerva and am repainting the chest with Krylon Fusion White. Should I apply Krylon Clear Coat when finished or just leave it alone?

    It's just painting a black piece white, what use would it be to show pics? I was primarily wondering if adding clear coat is a common thing to do to Transformers, like it is with cars. I understand it will give it a shinier look, so I suppose if I'm looking for that style I should do it.

    It's common but from what I've seen the preferred thing to use for said clear coat is acrylic floor polish

    ALLWAYS add a clear coat to seal any paintjobs, if for no other reason than to prevent the paint scratching off later. Be sure to mask off the surrounding parts when you spray, or better yet, remove the part if possible and spray it seperately if it's the only painted part.
