Clear coat preference

Postby ShawnAgne » Sun Oct 16, 2016 2:12 pm

Currently painting the new motor and I'm refinishing my L54 snowblade. I'm using the IH Red paint from Tractor Supply and looks rather nice. I'm using a gravity feed spray gun so was planning on clear coating the parts when doing painting. Was just wondering if anyone has a particular brand of clear coat you've found to be more durable or prefer.

Thanks in advance.

Same manufacturer as the paint, to be sure it is compatabe I wouldn't want to see your new pain job blister or aligator, because of the clear coating.

i would not clear it until it has cured for a month, that paint is very slow to cure especially if you didn't use a hardener.
