Clear coat question???

When clearing something with lots of nooks and crannies, like a wheel, that most likely won't be buffed out. Should I do anything different?

It just seems to me that clear coat is more vunerable to scrathing, etc. if it hasn't been color sanded and buffed.

Thanks

Most urethane clears should not be any more vulnerable sanded and buffed or not. As for the tips on wheels, If there are many nooks and cranny's, I would use a smaller gun (miniJet). This just gives you more control in smaller areas.

Good Luck!

You need to get the clear to atomize really good to get into all those nooks and crannies. Whatever gun you use crank up the air pressure to around 40-45psi.

Careful not to run it at high pressure.
