I'm just a consumer. I know some body shop owners. I was told if I wanted the clear to stay on there with a single stage to wait a few weeks after the paint was put on and scuff it up before I put the clear on. I might as well paint the car twice that way. I don't care if it looks different with clear on it. It's just a hobby car. A lot of body shops around here just use a single stage because they know what will happen and most of the cars getting paint jobs are not worth putting a exspensive paint job on. If I used AE on there it would not have lasted as long. I can repaint it now for less than $100. I could sand the paint and put on another top coat.
