E30 Hood - Sharpie Design

I am putting a e30 Hood with Sharpie Art drawn on it. The sharpie itself is an oil based marker, very durable and long lasting. However, you will need a clear coat on this if you like to put it on your car. I dont have a clear price so the highest bidder takes it, no low ballers please.

Doesn't matter for an E30. Coupe/Sedan/Cabby/Wagon is all the same.

Didnt know, im new to the E30 world :)

Yeah man, all the front end parts are the same, not like an E36. Welcome to the club, its a fun one.

That's pretty awesome! So, you can clear coat right over sharpie?

Not sure if you can directly do over it, might smudge depending on the pressure. Someone mentioned spray clear coat, that could be a possibility.

I'm not sure if you can spray clearcoat over it...

First of all, a "mechanical" adhesion is needed for clearcoat to stick...meaning the hood has to be sanded with P800-P1000 grit or scuffed before spraying clearcoat.
Secondly, the hood must be wiped with surface cleaner prior to spraying.
The surface cleaner may be solvent based or water based, whatever it is, it will probably remove the sharpie ink. The clearcoat also has some solvent in it which might react with the sharpie ink.
