adtkart If you really want to enjoy the painting, use laquer and cut down on the ventilation. Just be prepared for a dilly of a hangover in the morning.

Mirror Image Im with all the other guys go with the urethane basecoat-clearcoat such as PPG or Dupont and be sure to use urethane primer as well

troy-curt I have used a lot of laquer, very easy to apply, hard to sand, polishes beautifully,will not stand the elements.

Some of the top show cars in the world are painted with laquer.
It`s not as hard on you to breath. But i`ll stick with BC-CC. ALSO

adtkart I used to use Laquer all of the time. Can't even get it here anymore. After going to BC/CC, wouldn't even want to try.

troy-curt Laquer is easy, but not as durable.
Most young painters have never painted topcoat laquer.

If your painting an everyday beater, I would use acrylic enamel,
it can be sanded smooth.

On a classic,hotrod, showcar etc. I would use a BC_CC sys.
Ofcourse with BC_CC you have twice the chance to get trash and runs and saggggs.

You might check with dupont, they used to have a sys. called 502
used a laquer base and enamel clear. and was easy to work with.
Good Luck;

06-11-2003 11:18 PM I wouldn't consider using anything but catalyzed urethane. Easy to use, extremely durable, polishes great, and most importantly, in California, lacquer is illegal.

outlaw17 Laquer is for painting cars that Fred Flintstone would drive , you need to look into Basecoat /Clearcoat , its waaaay easier to use (in my opinion) and easy to fix flaws , its more money but its a much better product .
