Not sure I understand your question. Is the car actually painted in lacquer? Haven't heard of anyone using anything but urethane for custom stuff for quite a while. If you have a nice pearl job, I would give it a good clear coat then tape and flame over that to protect the pearl. Then clear the whole thing with a few coats and sand/polish.

Over here (UK) we still tend to use the term 'lacquer' for any clearcoat, be it 1K, 2K, urethane or whatever.

Hope that clears the confusion

I understand. Kinda like asking for a coke for a cola, some jello for some gelatin, - generic slang. Can't do that in Kalifornia though - go around saying you are going to squirt 'lacquer' on your car and you can get yourself a pretty nice prison term. Penalties here for spraying lacquer paint could conceivably exceed those for murder on certain cases!
