Thanks for the response Barry. One last question for you experts. If I use a Lacquer paint does anyone recommend putting a clear on top or does it not make any difference. What has the best shine properties. I know that BC/CC is the best for shine and durability. Any thoughts thanks!

If the lacquer is a sold color you can sand with 600 before clearing but not metallics.
Its been a long time but if you have not bought the clear yet
PPG High performance was one of the best.
RM (Basf) had a good one -can't remember the name.
Dupont's clear buffed like cement.
The nice thing about lacquer you could do about anything you wanted with the big exception of going to a faster thinner on the next coat. Some people buffed the last coat of color than shot the clear on custom work.
Most of us painters from back than are dead from liver failure because of the lead content.
