Help with ppg

I have sprayed ppg for years and have had to use other brands of clear (cci, sherwin willums,ect) in a pinch and have had no problems, but I agree with you that I to would wait at least an hour or even over night, make sure you tack before clearing of course. I never use activator in the base with any brand of paint that I have used in the past. If you are looking for a clear that is very user friendly and have the same results at half the cost.When ppg first came out with Omni I tried it on my truck first and had great success with it.I build show cars only and have been able to do anything with it. Like I said at half the price. I had applied a gallon and a half of clear wet sanded , applied another gallon and a half then wet sanded and polished to a mirror finish.I all so airbrush and a most of that needs lots of clear to be able to wet sand the hard edges out.
