Oct 05, 2017 · In general we use the same schedules - correct primer or base for the finish to be used, enough coats to level the surface and allow for perfect color sanding, then the clear coats. With lacquer I never sand finer that 400 grit before applying the clear - you want some tooth for the new finish to adhere to. When you painted you should be wet sanding with 2000 grit between coats. Never dry sand. Then lay a REALLY good quality clearcoat (UPOL again) as thick as possible without running ( this actually takes quite a bit of skill and can make or break the final product). Then finish with G10 or G20, meguires will work also.
Oct 26, 2020 · So after many times of spraying clear and wet sanding it away, I decided if needed I would respray base coat wherever I ended up sanding through. Soooo for one time only I switched to dry sand with 320. haha It worked awesome. Of course I followed it up by wet sanding with 400. 600. 800, 1000, and 1500 -2000 then spray base coat.
