Do you think it will crack or anything since im gonna let it cure for around 16 hours or so? I assume it want but will be pissed if it does lol!
    No, it shouldn't. If it does, don't use that specific clear again, because good clear wont crack at all.

    Well for some reason the Duplicolor clear coat made 1 star crack but i had a extra so i'm almost done coating it 4 times already and will let it dry for a few hours and put it on the truck! You really can't tell the difference in clear coat and not and i ended up putting 5 coats on everything so it is really shiny since it's a gloss black. There shouldn't be any chipping for awhile i wouldn't think so it should be find with as many coats i put on it and let it cure for awhile also.

    Well i got them on the truck but i got a few things to do first then i will take a few pic's of them on the truck! They do look good i just hope they dont start chipping and all lol i would be pissed after all the time i put into them! Idk why the clear coat is acting that way i used the same for the other 2 center caps and stars and they handled it good with no cracking or anything? Idk but i wasn't gonna take the chance on other things and it end up making me start all over again!
