swvalcon Not sure what you mean by layer them. I shot two coats of spi production mixed 4-1-1 with a mid temp reducer about a half hr between coats. Then shot my last coat or third coat with production mixed at 4-1-1 and about a half qt of spi universal mixed at 1-1-25% mid temp. I talked to Berry one day when I was in the middle of a job and was low on production but had some universal. I asked him if I could mix the two and he said yes as long as both were pre mixed in the right amounts before I poured them together. I liked the end results and had mentioned to him that I liked the production clear but didn't care for the way it buffed. He said the adding the universal should help that. I've started to buff this thing and cut it with 600-1000-1500 on the da. Then 2000 wet and it buffs just like buffing out universal and looks like glass.

swvalcon Put down 3 coats of omni. base yesterday let it dry overnight. Wet sanded out any dust specks and dry spots that I didn't like. Sweept out the booth, wet the floor and tacked off whole car including masking paper with old tack rag. I save old still usable tack rags specially for this. Now I will give it a double wet coat of base with 25% hardener in it wait about 4 hrs and start to clear

swvalcon A dark green Pearl from a 2010 jag. Almost looks black with no sun light. I told the guy this wasn't to be a show car so if there's a wave or two he'll have to live with it if he want that dark of a color. It is a Sharp color though.

swvalcon Got the rt 1/4 panel done and in epoxy so now it's just let everything dry good and wet sand for paint. Should have the jambs done this week and maybe start to paint. The owner was over and looked at it yesterday and he's happy with the way it looks.I'll post some pictures when it's done.

swvalcon Got the header wet sanded with 400 ready to paint and finished the rt 1/4 panel bodywork. See if I can get lucky twice in a row and have this one as straight as the other side. If I do I'am feeling real good about my mega millions numbers for tonight.
