Have you considered using basecoat ? Apply the black,unmask the decals,clear the lot and then if you get any crap you can flat and polish
Hi thanks for that , If I use clear coat i would need to lay it within minutes on top of the Glasurit 68line I'm now using, as unmasking decal must be when the black+clear are wet to get the nice edge - as the surrounding colour is dead matt white which is what the the masking sits on . If that makes sense.
This is why I went for straight Medium solid 2K gloss black initially.
Would my gloss necessarily show more dust than clearcoat (which I've never used, mainly because it is only available in High solid and not Med)

and flatting/polishing I want to avoid if possible because it never looks as nice as pure wet. Plus all the flatting/polishing however well masked messes white, and there are over 400 to do.
