Wondering if it'll fade or if it was a good buy. I assumed that it was the clear that offered uv protection as well as fade resistance? I'll be getting me a SPI kit for top coat...Ive used their (autobahn) euro speed clear for a couple years now, and I like it better then Nason 4 to 1. So I figured if their clear is good, their color should be too?
it doesn't necessarily mean that. If I were you I'd steer far "clear" from that speed clear, or any speed clear. I don't understand what it's even for . Even when I did lot work painting everyday for 3 years I found no use for it after trying it once. So if I didn't find it useful doing lot work what's it for? Nascar pit stops?

btw, not a knock to you in any way. Just think you're selling yourself short on that one.
