You can buy all the best tools and materials and STILL not be able to paint! Besides, what one person thinks is the best, someone else thinks is crap. You need to work on you first. Practice, go get some paint and clear and paint something. QUIT focussing all your attention on what OTHER people think are the best.

HAHA

I like knowing what is the best of the best , newest of the newest. yeah its gold for this person to someone else its crap. its going tobe me thats going to decide what is best. If i get pointed to the right direction the better off ill be.

Everybody's opinion is important, i rather learn from somebody's mistake than my own. Plus do you know how many different kind of clear coat is out there? Too many to try out one by one. i'm not that rich

So far ive used every clear thats universal to oem paint jobs due to matching, but ive never purchased clear coat for my own personal use. Please i need to know the best of the best

the "best of the best" is subjective. Like I said some people swear by HOK, some SPI, some RM, ect... It depends on what you are doing with it. That is why there are so many clears. What one clear works great for, another one sucks at and vice-versa. Some are air dry, some are booth clears. There is not ONE ultimate clear, or all companies would only make 1. ( and chronos, even SPI. Even they have more than one clear. )

Stick with a good company, like all the majors, and you'll have great luck. You don't see show cars or any of the major car builders/hot rod shops paint with Kirker, Transtar, Nason, Omni, shopline, 5 star, ect.... So that eliminates tons.

I learnt how to spray with that RM stuff. I like it alot, found it to be really user friendly.

I also like PPG's 2002 polyurethane clear.

You can buy that most expensive clear on the market. You can have it special formulated, blended and mixed, and it won't do you any good if you don't know how to paint.

The statement that you are going to sand it between every coat tells me that you don't have much experience with painting. ( you can lay down enough clear in one coat to sand it, if you try you will have solvent pop!)

The statement that you would rather learn from other's mistakes, tells me you don't have much experience with painting. (Every painter has learned by his own mistakes, not mistakes of others)

The statement that you want to know which is the best for air drying, tells me that you don't have much experience with painting. (Clear coat doesn't dry by air, it cures by chemical reaction.)

DC5335 Glamour Clear? if so its sounds like what i'm looking for how is it compared to PPG's 2002 polyurethane clear ppg seems so thick i can have fun buffing it down but which of the two is best for air drying?

Off the subject: After browsing thru RM product line i found R-M DC5775 Matte Clear!

You should of never told me about rm now i want it

Show-stopping matte.

R-M DC5775 Matte Clear is a growing choice among enthusiasts who like a bumper-to-bumper flat finish or just want to accent small areas. Complementing the consistent look and feel of this formula is cost savings for your shop. DC5775 combines the clearcoat and flattener in one product. What's more, it meets all VOC regulations across NAFTA.


Is this the product thats been used for the image below??? or was it kustomshop.com hot rod FLATZ
sorry i should of made a different trend


*DROOL*
