OneMoreTime Being more clear...While in a perfect world we should not need to scuff or tack between coats of base and clear we do need to inspect between coats to see that no bugs or dust bunnies have up and bit us..and if so we need to fix that issue before proceeding with the paint job...then if one has been bitten then we do what we have to do..

Who said that? You DON'T EVER scuff unless you have a flaw to remove.

There are a number of things that can happen and most likely would. Most likely simply leaving something there like lint or a smudge.

The base is so touchy that keeping the area clean and simply leaving it untouched throughout the application is best.

Sam, you don't mean wiping down between coats of color do you? I have to say, and experianced painter could pull that off (though they don't because it is unnecessary but only in a rare case) but a newbe wiping between coats of paint could really cause some harm. And most certainly not between coats of clear! Without a doubt you do not want to do that!

Just to clarify for Panelwagon

302 Z28 Wype-All are OK, that is what I use. Be sure and wipe the surface dry and do not let it evaporate dry.

panelwagon62 Alright thanks for the tips. The wipes we use at our shop are by kimberly clark and they are called "wype-all" but I don't believe they are lint free.

How to apply waterborne wax and grease remover?

Ok I just picked up a gallon of spi WB wax and grease remover. One question, do I spray it directly on to the panel then wipe off, or spray a rag with it, wipe down the panel then wipe off with another clean rag? If not what's the reasoning? Thank you
