SPI clear

well after reading some info on here and a few on line searchs im gonna try some of this clear called them today. seemed like a decent fellow too. since they dont have a jobber in my area i asked them about that also. i know about 25 body shops in this area that might want to try this product mix is 1.1 ratio and i got the slow reducer for up to 90 degrees since im not ready to paint the casket yet but almost.

I should had asked this question before as I shot some universal clear but I was wondering whatbthe shelf life on this clear is and if i shake it and itbhas bubbles in it can it be shot that way? I dont have much experience shooting other clears but shot today with my Iwata Ls400 and seems to lay nice. Whats the trick for shooting clears over silver metallic? I cant seem to see how its laying out or how much material im shooting. I have a new respect for those who can lay down metallics perfectly. It took my 5 coats to get rid of the tiger striping

My favorite clear...
The trick to even metalics silvers and golds especially is to criss cross your pattern...If you go front to back on the first coat go side to side on the second,then incress the pressure and hold the gun about 12"-24" and fog on two diagonal coats the first going one way and the second going the other ,making an X you'll never see a tiger stripe again...I usually reduce the base again by half as much for these two fog coats,half a cup should do the whole car..

I'm with DBM, I don't take any chances. I do a fog coat or two any time I spray metallic or pearl.

The air bubbles are nothing to be concerned about, when the paint goes through the nozzle on the gun it will be so atomized there will be no air bubbles.
