Acrylic Laquer

Hey guys Im going to be painting my car soon and because I don't have a booth to spray in. I have decided to use Acrylic laquer instead of 2pack. Im just wondering is it possible to get a good mirror shine with acrylic laquer after it has been buffed?

thanks

You can get a great shine from lacquer. It's time consuming but you can get a glossy shine. You will need to apply many coats.

I used to use acrylic lacquer all the time. You can either sand & buff the finish when you're done, or clear coat it. I've even used enamel clear over the base, & it worked fine. That way, no sand/buff on the clear. The nice part of using the laquer, is if your spay booth (shop, garage) isn't 100% dirt/dust/bug free, you can sand & buff out the mis-steps.
