Because most pistons with center bolts get those leaks. Whats your secret?

You will have to go over everything you want to clear coat (use the lacquer on) with 1200 grit wet sand, then clean and dry before clearing. Be advised, all clear coats that come from rattle cans take a good week to fully cure and they cure soft.
The reason rattle can clears do this is because they contain a large amount of thinner to give them shelf life. When you buy 2 part clear and mix it according to manufacture directions you get about 2 hours tops to clear your project.
One more thing to be careful of is that on some surfaces it may have a dark look to it, all most black. If I where you I would clear a test piece 1st then look at it under different shades of light to be sure if it turns out like you want it to.
