nasson clear
 
1 Attachment(s)
I just finished a 61 olds for a guy he was happy but I not so much. I sprayed omni base with nasson 497 clear with slow activator. sanded with 1000 and re-cleared sanded again with 1000 and 1500 then buffed the crap out of it. Not happy with the shine or the depth in some areas. Been doing this for years but got away from painting several years ago. Now that I stated a retirement shop I need to paint again. Any ideas on how to get that nice wet look shine?

Use SPI clear.
Nason is Junk

Ya what he said ^^^^^ I wouldn't use Nason on show car, unless customer specified it. I have better results with omni clear than Nason.

we agree on that,Spi is all I use dont shy away from the price (around 200.00 for two sprayable gal)IMO its as good as glassurit for buffing and sprays like glass...but if you have any trouble just call the SPI hotline and the owner that made it will answer and help.I havent buffed these yet........................but omini base? :nono: :nono: :nono:

da34guy- You have made 3 posts in this thread, all of them say the same thing.

Can you please elaborate on what differences there are between the Omni and SPI.

If Omni is "junk" please say what is so poor about it, otherwise, it looks to me like you are just peddling a favorite brand.

Later, mikey

deadbodyman 07-12-2009 12:35 PM

hey 34 you sayin you like it better than chroma clear, glasurat and PPG or you just cheap like me? That barry's a heck of a guy ,he knows dang well he can get twice as much for it...even from me.its inexpensive...not cheap stuff but if it was it would still be a better deal than omini or nason.even for the used cars. not that theres anything wrong with those...this is just a better deal,....the best deal

Possibly a dealer for SPI??? :mwink:
I have sprayed Omni clear over DBC base and it came out very well. It came out glossy, layed out nice. I did not have to buff it to make it glossy. Just a few dirt specs needed to be fixed. Customer was satisfied.

# 1 - Not a dealer for any paint products.
# 2 - Been pullin the trigger for over 40 years and have shot it all
# 3 - Nothin wrong with PPG, Glausirt, Dupont
# 4 - Nason is like water, not a high solid, Omni the same
Takes 3 coats to + 1 of SPI
# 5 - Spi buffabilty is awsum
# 6 - Just didn't shoot 1 car a month for 40 years, but probably averaged 4- 5 a week in my collision shop
# 7- I guess 40 years experiance doesn't qualify me for an opnion of a superior product

Keystone, now there's a really inferior product. I wouldn't use their products on a beater.

omni is a second line paint designed for body shop repairs which will never come back. there is a reason it is cheaper . the colors take more to cover . the clear takes way more mill thickness to achieve good protection and gloss. if not it will die back and fuzz out in no time. give it 30 days and try to buff it .
and just what product should we recommend ? one that works or one that you read about or watched a tv show about. unlike some of you we have to stand behind our work. one redo will suck the profit out of several jobs. it's simply not worth the risk.
