Fred (RC Old Man) offers clear coating process to your chassis/topdeck towers. Just PM him and he will take care of you. The blue flake is trick...I saw it Sat in person.

We used to do this years ago in oval racing. I painted real cars so we would use automotive urethane clear. It made the cars a little heavier, but that can be good if your light, since your putting the weight very low.
