I just finished painting my interior trim panels for the second time. They are painted with duplicolor Chrome, however every time i try to use a clear coat sealant (I have tried Duplicolor color match clear & Rustoleum clear coat sealant) it turns the chrome from shiny and chrome-like to a really ugly off grey/silver color. The first time I painted them was when I noticed it, which is why I had to repaint them. The first time I let them sit for about an hour before putting the sealant on. Then re-sanded and repainted, waited overnight and then put sealant on and the same thing happened. Ugly silver color. So I re-sanded and painted everything the second time. The paint has been sitting for about 3 days now and is still flaky and rubs a bit when I touched it. I really think it needs a clear coat/sealant to withstand being back in the car, any Ideas on what could fix this problem???
