    the CV19 made impossible to have my work clear coated by a pro in a spray booth so I had to come up with something that I could spray with out a spray booth and I found this product

    it can be sprayed with temperatures round or above 20 C degrees and it is dries within an hour
    I know no one should spray this stuff without protection or with out a spray booth but these are strange times and I made sure I had all the right gear to protect myself and a well ventilated room to spray in
    all I needed to know what the trick behind a good clear coat is and my friend filled me in on that trick :D
    all went perfect till the last wet coat : my regulator started to leak air and pressure and I ended up with a mild orange peel but I had to sand the clear coat any way as there is a micro flake in the base paint so I didnt mind
    the clear coat was indeed dry after an hour and it said it was ready for cut and buff after 1.5 hour so I waited 2 hours to be on the safe side and sanded all imperfections out and it is now ready for the final coats
    I should have about 3 to 4 days before this clear is fully hardened and temps will stay round the 20 degrees

    the regulator is now fixed and I am happy to have found a 2K clear I can work with

    That’s great Ron. The clear I have seems to have similar dry times. It’s not bad for a relatively cheap clear glad you’ve had good results with yours.
