My question is, can I clearcoat it after I engrave it or should I engrave it first? For that matter can I clearcoat it at all?

Aluminum wheels are clear coated so I don't see why not. I would do it after the engraving myself. No expert just what I would do.

After machining, prep it & clearcoat it, otherwise the aluminum will oxidize after a while.

Definately has to be clear coated after you engrave it.

I don't see the difference. I probably need better glasses.
Edit: Now I see, I like the first better. Why change?
