any good painter will lay a min of 3-5 coats of clear, how do you think show car finishes are made?? I've seen up to 7 done before cause after wet sanding and buffing 3-4 coats can be removed to get that glass finish and the last thing you wanna do is lay it thin and burn through to the base

now you got me thinking...well, thanks for the info, I learned something new

I have seen Bill's work on many a car (Bill from westminster) and it is on point! He will give you a fair price and it will be done right! BobT doesn't recommend many people but when he does trust him!

if you don't have a temperature controlled booth Ryan to paint it, you'd be wise to wait until late sept/early october when it is less humid and cooler, even with a slow reducer, with temps as they are now it'll be tough to control the rate at which it cures, often in weather like we have now, it'll dry from the outside in and the primers as well as the paint/clear will do some fun stuff....Been there done that one Smile
