The cats out of the bag-----Barry is just trying to sell alot of his product for his juicy retirement.just spoofing of course.SPI is the ONLY clear I use and to put it on high $$$ show,collector, and race cars,doing it the way he recommends has given us excellent results.Keep in mind you can still get a killer job with 3 coats,sand and buff--but if you're looking for the ultimate-clear, sand and reclear--sand and buff you'll really be amazed---Bob

|kenseth17||BK, didn't your momma ever teach you to be nice to your elders. Keep it up and those guns from the 60's and that case of endust won't go to you when Jim gets to the big paint booth in the sky. Or who knows, maybe the other direction. Better stock up on retarder Big jim.|

Most clears are not made for custom work but may be a handful in this side of the business that are.
PPG has one, Dupont has or had one but may have new number.
All you have to do is look at some of those race Honda's where they piled 3 gallons of clear on it and bought the cheap stuff to save money and you will see what I mean.

The clear can shrink and get solvent pops if applied to heavy or not enough flash time .This is true of all paints I started the paint(base) work on this in Dec and last coat was done in March
My usual paint time from primer to base is 2 weeks then base with proper flash then intercoat clear or my top coat if no graphics are involved . I will let it sit a week sand let sit another day or 2 then do my next clear step let sit again for a week . Then final sand and do my flow coats I very rarely need to cut and buff..
Thanks for the comments on the bike she is my little hottrod
Already have the plans for next winters tear down...

What problems can someone expect with too much clear build-up. I understand that what has been described so far has a lot of the clear sanded off so the film is not as heavy as one might expect but how much build-up is too much?
Springer, Now that is SLICK

They're not talking about runs like yours where the entire
side of the car is dripping and puddeling on the floor.
When you have half a gallon of clear on the floor that's spraying to
