Thats true but why buy the good stuff in the first place......more reducer= more shrinkage and raises the possibilites of solvent pop for those less experianced....
Try this ....leave some good 1:1 clear in a mixing cup (about a 1/2" or so) Then take the same clear and reduce it 4:1:1 in another cup and let them both cure for a two weeks'll find the reduced clear seperates form the cup about a 1/4" -1/2" and the unreduced clear will still be stuck to the sides....ever wonder why sand scratches show up after a few weeks ? I truely believe thats half of it right there...
