    Icon7 Random Questions regarding the RX series

    Hi everyone,

    There are a lot of queries that really dont fit in any of the existing threads. So, in order to avoid hijacking other threads, i'am starting this one to ask questions that may not require special threads. Just random questions that require 1or 2 answers from our experts.

    My First questions is

    Q. Can the clear coat on the RX tank done along with the Sticker/ decal save the sticker from fading?

    yes! It saves the sticker from physical scratches, absorption of oils,water,solvents, dirts etc to avoid decolour..since clear coat will have more hardness then stickers.
