Not sure what you mean by layer them. I shot two coats of spi production mixed 4-1-1 with a mid temp reducer about a half hr between coats. Then shot my last coat or third coat with production mixed at 4-1-1 and about a half qt of spi universal mixed at 1-1-25% mid temp. I talked to Berry one day when I was in the middle of a job and was low on production but had some universal. I asked him if I could mix the two and he said yes as long as both were pre mixed in the right amounts before I poured them together. I liked the end results and had mentioned to him that I liked the production clear but didn't care for the way it buffed. He said the adding the universal should help that. I've started to buff this thing and cut it with 600-1000-1500 on the da. Then 2000 wet and it buffs just like buffing out universal and looks like glass.

What was the purpose of finishing off with production clear instead of Universal on all coats?

Just used the production to cut costs a little because I'am way over the bid on this car.
