hey all got a question for the masters of mods and customizing. I just got done modding my od pedal and instead of painting it, I ran the grinder across it a few times to give it a raw, unevenly sanded look. Now for the question: can I just clear coat it with krylon clear coat or is there something else I should be using. thanx

why do you need to clear coat metal if there isn't any paint on it?

could stop it oxidizing (sp?).

I wanted to clear coat it to keep it from oxidizing and to keep what I did to it from getting scratched. The way I took the grinder to it looks beat up, but in a nice looking way (I'll put some pics up later to show you what I mean). Anywho, any help on steps to clear coating this thing? thanx

I think krylon shoul work fine, I'm not sure if it adheres to metal though, but I think it should, I used it last on something I clear coated and it worked great.

walmart brand clear coat works excellent,..and it only cost .98 cents!!..wooo whoooo!

but for whatever brand you use,..make sure you clean the metal real well..and theN wipe it a couple times with mineral spirits before you apply the clear coat,..and apply several coats.....dont wait until its dry between coats...it should be tacky.

if you wanted to paint it and then apply clear coat....apply the same technique...clean/mineral spirits/paint and apply the clear coat before it dries...the pedal will appear wet,...looks pretty sharp

true, it might get a little shinier. just google baking pedals. You put your pedal enclosure in like a toaster oven. NEVER USE IT FOR FOOD AGAIN. google it though.

There are different types of clear coat (Gloss, Semi-gloss, and flat) So you can still get that metal look by using flat if you wanted to.
