Who said anything about cheap carlot work? OH ,you did when you compared the normal everyday bodyshop and their work to car lot work....its also not about trailer queens that never see any weather either....You ever meet anyone that didnt have 1,000 but wanted a nice paint job enough to do everything themselves?They're called hotrodders...
Actually the site is ALL about hotrodd'ERS and helping them do thier own work with better results...Like I said you need to get out more ,not only is two coats plenty .its the industry standard and just getting a job comparable to a body shop job standard is hard enough for the average DIYer...since you dont do average work I was wondering how you know so much about Nason Clear and how long it lasts ,mabee your doing something wrong... I got some on my daily driver (2 coats) thats 9yrs old and still looks good ,matter of fact you cant tell the nason from the original.....Now you drive your 10=14 coat of clear job everyday ungaraged and let us know "next year" how its holding up. LOL, you'll need a much smaller hat next year...

i have more high end jobs on the road today than you have ever done mike. several are daily driven and unlike you i can offer the proof. your boast about all you've done but to this day you are all talk. you have never posted any proof of all you claim to have done so i do not believe anything you say. sorry but you cant build a reputation with a keyboard.
just because i choose not to do collision work does not mean i have never been involved with it. i do not need to use a cheap second line paint to know what it is and your industry standard has nothing to do with custom work. i doubt anyone wants to spend years getting their hotrod ready for a average paint job.

I myself feel mil thickness is more important than coats. That's something you only learn over a period of time and a lot of paint jobs. No two painters will take a gun and mix their own paint and go around a car x amount of times and end up with the same amount of paint on the car. Each painter has to kind of learn how much paint or clear it take to get what they want on each job and put on that much material. I know in my own case I put down different mils depending on if its a show car, daily driver or just a cheap make it shine for as little as possible job.

If you're referring to me, You're not making three coats meet in the middle of a panel, just making two coats meet at that point.

I agree completely with you on that. I just wanted to make certain my comment wasn't misunderstood.
