spi production clear
I've got a 2008 f-250 that I'am painting for one of my dealers. Nice truck and he wanted it done up nice. Painting the box and passenger door.I ordered some spi production clear and been waiting to give it a try on something.Truck is white and thought this was perfect. Painted the tailgate last night at the end of the day.Put on a good heavy coat of clear maybe more that I should have in one coat but it was face up on a stand and I got a little carried away. Seem like it had a lot of peel in it.So I thought give it one more coat and do a major sand and buff. Went in to give it a second coat after about 10 min. and it had lay-ed down like glass. At that point I just left it alone and did a light scuff with 1000 grit this morning and buffed. Looks better than factory by far. Didn't buff as Nice as spi universal but not bad. [Another great product Berry]

Just got the rest of the truck painted and putting it back together today. Looks great nice and smooth with as close to no orange peel that you can get, wet and slick like you buffed it. One spot on door that looks like the begaining of a run that I'll have to sand and buff the rest should be fine. I'll try to get a picture when done but been having issues up loading pictures with camera. For $84 for 5 qts sprayable some good product.
