My wife is using oil based paint. We are not painting the whole plate just the logo. I know that all, or most, oil based varnishes have an amber tint. Hens, my question. Is there a way to lock in the color? I am very willing to use a clear water based top coat, however, I worry about durability. Here in Vegas I’m not so worried about water because we rarely get any rain. But these plates will be on the front of a car. They will get sandblasted with dust, dirt and anything else that kicks up. If the GF 450 doesn’t yellow then that will be the way to go. I just will have to order it on line because I can’t buy GF products here.
