Need a place (near Sugar Land) to clearcoat a tank

First, I plan on applying the base coat myself after performing the body work. I'm about 70% finished with the bondo/glazing compound/primer and will be applying a blue metallic base coat (automotive, 10$/can) and some checkered stickers down the center. I was going to let a small shop in the area finish up the work, but they wanted $275 to finish up the body work and paint.

Since that's a significant fraction of the value of the bike ('76 CB750), I'm left to do most of the work myself.

Anyone know of someon in the Sugar Land area that can apply a clear coat on top of a base coat with (paintable) stickers? I figure it shouldn't cost more than $50 to apply a simple coat of clear.

Do you anticipate any issues clearing over non-"automotive" paint/decals?

Whereabouts in Houston are you located?

What's the turn-around time? Can this be done in 24-hrs?

urethane clear might not be compatible with spray can enamel.
In my experience, turn around time is 2 days, one to spray and next to pick up IF everything went well. $50 is a little bit low, that is the cost of clear/material. Prepping the surface for clear takes time and money. Just my .02 cents.

If you're going to do it, at least do it right. The grammatically correct way is to spell out the word and use in declarative form: "first." Now this makes me even more gay for spelling it out (pun intended).
