I have read the posts on the auto-air colors, their Web site and some of the info here on the Eastwood site. But one question still looms: Why MUST one use a traditional clearcoat with these water-based paints?
I am a novice at body work. But I am considering a repaint with the auto air paint, and the prospect becomes less appealing if I have to in the end work with the harsh chemicals of a traditional clearcoat. That seems to diminish the appeal of the water-based paints, which primarily is that you can safely do it in your garage. :confused:
Perhaps an expert can enlighten me. Is it necesary to use something such as a urethane clearcoat to finish off an auto-air project?
