mines the precision ezsolid, ive had mine over a year and a half and only polished it one time and it looks as good as the day i got it. i wouldnt waste any time even thinking about clearing it and i dont even know if its possible. its a billet aluminum grille and aluminum doesnt rust.buttespade... its the same one as yours. clear coatinging it wouldn't do anything? it wouldn't make the finish last longer? what about for brushed aluminum... doesn't clear coat stop it from rusting or something?
