Too long?

  • Use the slowest reducer/activator for the temperature you’re working in.
  • Lay material on wet! Dry spray = more texture
  • Stop bragging about how many coats you sprayed, get the material thickness down & move on.

Imagine achieving that flawless, wet, glossy clear coat finish without the hassle of cutting and buffing. Yes, it’s possible! Whether you’re a seasoned painter or a beginner, here’s your ultimate guide to a smooth, stunning clear coat that’ll make your vehicle shine.

Essential Tips for a Flawless Finish:

  1. Surface Prep is Key: Make sure your surface is pristine—clean, dry, and free from any contaminants.
  2. Choose the Right Clear Coat: Match your clear coat with your paint type for optimal results. Whether you’re burying flake or need a fast-drying option, there’s a clear coat for you.
  3. Control Your Environment: Spray in a controlled setting with the right temperature and humidity. Follow the product’s specific guidelines.
  4. Proper Masking and Ventilation: Protect areas you don’t want to coat and ensure good airflow to avoid overspray.
  5. Perfect Mixing: Stick to the manufacturer’s mixing ratios for clear coat and hardener. Too much or too little can ruin your finish.
  6. Spray Gun Setup: Keep your spray gun clean and adjust settings as per recommendations.
  7. Practice Makes Perfect: Test your technique on a sample surface to get a feel for even application.
  8. Consistent Coverage: Overlap each stroke by 50% and maintain a steady speed to avoid runs and sags.
  9. Proper Drying: Let each coat dry thoroughly before adding the next one.
  10. Buffing and Polishing: Once cured, buff and polish for that high-gloss finish.

Troubleshooting Common Issues:

  • Orange Peel: This is a bumpy finish that resembles an orange’s surface. Avoid it by following proper technique and using the right products.
