Clear Laquer over matte black carbon frame?
Hi chaps, just got my carbon Dengfu rig from China and am wanting to give it a matte clear coat to help protect the frame from chips, UV damage and make it easier to clean. So at the moment its smooth matte black and even just touching it with my fingers leaves visible residue and makes it look shitty. I have been previously warned about putting lacquer onto carbon frames due to adhesion or reaction issues - has anyone got any experience on this or advice on what I should do. What type of clear coating I should use? Or does anyone know of frame painters in the Greater London area who might have experience doing this? Or should I just not worry about it, ride it hard and leave it dirty?
