Even if the great info in that thread was ignored (flex agent is largely a waste of money with modern urethanes) you wouldn't want to waste your money being that showboard doesn't flex enough.

Oh, and check your tech sheets if you still plan on using it, most all base coats have a strict "rule" DO NOT use flex (or any other additive) in it.

This morning, I was asked by a jobber to look at a Lexis 400 that was painted allover black with PPG and clear after 2 weeks was coming off in sheets.
The reps answer was well you did something wrong!

I get to looking at this thing and the base has a funny feel to it, I though can't be but I suspected silicone in the base. Put a little water on a base spot and it looked like water on a waxed car.
Sure enough when I questioned the painter about fish-eye eliminator he was getting fish-eyes in the base and jobbers said add fish-eye eliminator.

Just so you all know, you never do that!
like Martinsr said base is best left alone!
