Hi I'm new to the forum and a beginer in pinstriping. I was wondering if your supposed to wet-sand the striping. I know that with 1-shot you don't have to put a cear coat over it but most others you do.

The only time I have ever seen or heard of wet sanding striping was to sand it out to the point that it looked faded and old . Only thing that I have seen it on were rat rods. Never have heard of it done on any thing else. Since you are new to the site do a search for pin striping and look tru the posts there is some very good info and pics on this site.

Good Luck

Your post is a little misleading, but I'll try. Are you planning to clear over the car with the pinstripes on it? Or are you asking if the stripes need to be clearcoated? The stripes themselves don't need to be clearcoated.

If you've striped the car and then want to clear the whole thing, hopefully you've put some hardener into the striping paint. If not, you may have some problems with lifting of the pinstripes. You'll need to spray several light coats of clear over the stripes, let them dry; then wet sand them with 800 or finer to take the ridge down. Do not sand down into the stripes. Then clear the whole thing, sand and buff. Then you should not have ridges in the clear where the pinstripes are.
