Clear coat

I use Lacquer clear coat from Autozone and it works great. The best thing is it dries to the touch in less then 30 min with a good shine.

Clear Coat

Hey Guys,
The clear we have had best luck with is the Rust-Oleum Specialty Lacquer clear (sold at Lowes). The trick is light coats sealing the entire canopy. Ive even used clear first, then vinyl and then another coat of clear. This gives the vinyl a nice foothold to the plastic. TechnikVR, have you had any problems with the autozone clear cracking?
Thanks
Joe

clearcoat

I have not had a problem with it cracking and I use the autozone one because it has the fan spray nozzle which gives smoother coats.

and it sticks to the milk bottle canopy?

You don't use an adhesion(sp) promoter or anything...just spray and go?

Hmmmm...I like it, if it works.

Clear

I clear the whole thing with the windshield still on because it makes the whole canopy shine. Another thing I like about the Lacquer clear is that it also does not run as bad as other clears.

How about yellowing

Does the clear turn yellow from a spray can...

Does PPG clear stick...like from a auto shop..this stays clear

clear

I have not gone through a full year with it yet so I do not know if it yellows. The clear you spray with a gun is very bad to your health unless you get a respirator. The automotive paint and thinner I use gives me the biggest headache and breathing problems using a regular mask. Also the price of it is 40-60.00 a bottle. Just make sure you use automotive degreaser on the canopy before applying decals or paint. There is a good tip section at CanopyFX.com

I would not spray it....

I would go to a body shop and let them hit it....but I was just wondering if the ppg would stick to a milk bottle canopy or not? Let them get the cancer, I just want to chop my head off by a miss shot auto

clear

It will stay on if they add flex agent to it. I had them add it to a urethane ground effects bumper on my car and the thing hit a big rock without cracking the paint.

Road construction workers dropped a pile of concrete in the middle of the road. Hit it going about 50mph.
