That should do it. It seems to be pretty tough and protects the finish from chips and bare lead from oxidation. The only drawback is that if you are ordering it now, it might freeze in transit. Barlow's tells you not to order it during freezing weather. If you can find it on the shelf in a store then you should be OK.Thanks for the input all. I've been thinking about using the cs seal coat after I have glued the eyes on so I'm gonna see if that does the trick..
