Default Clear coating

This may be a silly question, but would clear coating my chassis using spray laquer or similar restore the looks of the chassis? Thanks!

I'm a painter so i buy it here at the local paint store. yah it's a spray on. cost $150.00 a gallon with hardener.

I bet if you did the prep work a local body shop would hook you up. or you could try this go to the local car dealer and ask if the have a mobile painter. if the do give them a call.
