After painting and adding the decals I put a coat of clear coat over the whole shell to protect it from chipping and the decals from wearing. The 158 Engines runs only in one direction forward and is shorter than the 152/153. You only run them one way anyway.
I when over this engine and re-painted the shell and frame. After completed I put a coat of clear coat to protect the decals and prevent rust on hand rails.
