Question Urethane and clear coat.

I'm getting my '46 Chevy Panel ready for paint but before I go to far with a special request from my daughters I need to ask a question.The girls decided I need to paint some flames on the truck, well I'm not a painter so we came up with just flaming the headlight cans. I've gotten an airbrush and started to practice with it because the cans are not that big, we're going with some Ohio flames, I think I can do a better job with it rather than a big gun. Anyway the question is that the paint for the truck is single stage urethane so I'll use the same paint for the flames. Can I clearcoat over them after sanding to get rid of any edges?

Thanks folks

David

By all means clear coat it. I don't know what paint your using, but the PPG spec sheet says their Concept Urethane can be clear coated with just about any of their clears. The spec sheet P168 lists two clear coat options. 1 is to mix the clear in with the last color topcoat. 2 option is to use just clear. I went with the last option on a small job with Concept and it turned out great.

Here is the sheet on Concept

Check out anything of Bobby Alloway's that has flames...
If you pick up the newest issue of Street Rod Builder there is an article in there about Dan Hughes(famous for his "Ohio" flames)
Also in Street Rodder there is an article about Dan and Josh Shaws truck about their "Barn Fresh" paint job....very interesting. I got to meet Josh at Goodguys in Columbus this year. I am looking forward to talking to him next year at the same place...He and Dan Hughes are the ones that paint Bobby Alloway's flames on his Rat's Glass cars.
Later,
WEIMER

Thanks foks for the info. 302 the paint I'm using is Nason from Dupont the color is not standard its a true fire engine red from Emergency-One Fire Equipment, took the color code off one of my trucks.
Hopper, Mr. Weimer got it right on for the Ohio flames. The instructions in Street Rod builder are great. The headlight cans are small enough that if I mess it up it will be an easy fix.

Thanks again for the info folks

David

I'm not sure if it is one kind of flame rather just the style. Its a three color fade style the only reason I used that term/name is because thats what they called the style in the Street Rod Builder article.
