Clear coating fan & shroud.

I have my fan & shroud being cleaned at the blaster. I was thinking I could just clear coat it and - if lucky- find some good automotive clear coat in a spray can. I talked to a paint supplier. The guy told me clear coat had to be applied over a layer of paint and would flake off of bare metal (magnesium) in a short time. So I thought this would be the place to ask about it from guys who know a million times more than I do about it. If I can't clear coat it I will just have to give it a Gibbs treatment or similar I suppose. Thanks. I can check back later on.

just polishing it works great. Looks almost like chrome. Lasts a long time.
