Paint is applied and looks good. Now what do I need to do to protect it from gas spills and such?

I can't find a post on here telling what you used for paint but if you used "GOOD" urethane the answer is nothing! The occasional spill will dry up and wipe right off or wipe off when still wet. If you used something less then drape a towell around the inlet and get a no drip way of filling.

The key is your word "good". I spilled gas (funnel slipped) on PPG Omni Urethane several years ago within 2-3 days of painting. Wiped it off immediately, but had to polish it out. Got most of it but still can be seen if you know where to look.

Laughing Looks good to me.

I just hate to have a spill and crinkle a line in the paint.

Would clear coat help?

It is the chemical composition and the grade of the raw stock that it is made from that determines quallity , durability and price of paint , not whether it is clear coated or not. What you used is mid '70,s technology. With a catylist and cured 90 days shouldn't fuel spot if wiped off immediately. Without catylist...probably don't want to get any on it for a year. Clear acrylic enamel is same tech paint without the pigment and is usually loaded up with UV screeners more than the color. Leak/drip proof container w/ hose and a towel and patience. Where there's a will there's a way.

Thanks for the replies.

I used a hardener so hopefully it will cure and be resistant.

Interesting enough on another tractor I did years ago I used Valspar Restoration paint which was pretty cheap and it was immediately resistant.

Buy and use the 12 inch diameter galvanizes funnels with the built in screen. Then insert paint paper funnel inside that.
