    was just curious if any of the spray glosses, other than automotive gloss, provide uv protection from fading?

    Do yourself a favor. Stick to the automotive gloss. The rest is junk and will give you fits eventually.

    There is a spray can gloss by Krylon that is uv protectant and I have used it with success.....I am pretty new to fish and I will attest to Cecils post about glossing giving me the fits. I am definitely going to try the automotive gloss next and see how that works. Getting a good gloss coverage without any cracking has been my problems. Have tried multiple thin coats, spray cans and touch up guns and still run into problems now and again.
