I did not clear coat it at all. How many coats did you do on your bumper? Didn't know the bugs would be so destructive, ha!
You and me both! I only did about 4 coats which was a mistake. But daylight was short and I got lazy haha. I think this stuff gets a lot stronger with sufficient coats, so you should be alright. I am going to dip the crap out of the front one when I have an off weekend. I wanted to wait until the end of bug season just in case it doesn't work out haha.
