Default Candy on bare metal?

I like the look of bare metal.

Has anyone figured out clear on bare metal that will stick?

Can you color the clear slightly to give a little color like old candy apple red paint?

A friend of mine put Penetrol on his 48 Chevy pickup bobber, with a brush and it self levels.

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

That seems to work will. As it is an additive for oil based paint, one would think that adding some color to it would work just fine. Now add a flattener, and we would another option.
