    Hello, just completed painting cabinet using an awesome stencil kit from Pinball Pimp. I used Alkyd satin enamel for green, satin enamel for white and black.
    Was wondering if I should clearcoat this cabinet or not? If so what would be best to use?
    Unfortunately I will not be keeping game due to money issues and wanted to know what will be best to do to sell.

    Read over Chris' threads. He clear coats the cabinets.

    No idea if it might interact with the paint you used.

    I think I'd leave well enough alone.

    Auto paints are a matt finish so require a clear coat to get what ever shine you require that you feel is correct for the game. You have a satin finish now and you can still polish and buff to get a glossier temp finish. I think you are there.

    Nice paint job.
