Re: Clearcoat questions
the short answer is that i have no idea....
i'm ignorant when it comes to different kinds of automotive paint, clearcoat, and the like. i've used clearcoat two different times. On one bus i didn't keep it long enough to see what happened long term, but it sure looked good for the time that i owned it. the other bus i had for at least a couple years after i painted. even partly submerged it in the ocean for a few days, and never had any sort of problems as far as clearcoat not playing nicely with the paint......I did end up with a few rust/corrosion marks sometime after the ocean incident, but i don't think that was at all related to the clearcoat.
if the pro-paint guy thinks you might have issues, he's probably correct. I'm sure he has far more expertise in the paint department than i do.
i just started the painting process on my new bus today....and i'm gonna clearcoat it when i'm done.
