Clearcoat Rolling Anybody?

Post by ROCK&ROLL on June 17th 2013, 6:48 pm

Found quart cans of oil based clearcoat.

Made by Majic paint and sold by tractorsupply.com

Wondering if anybody has tried this or a similar product.

I think most people on here don't do clear. Including myself. I'd like to try it on my next project though. Can you link to the clear you're talking about?

EDIT: This? http://www.tractorsupply.com/en/store/majicreg%3B-clear-coat-high-gloss-lacquer-1-gal-clear

The title says lacquer, but the gallon says enamel. Strange. Maybe that's why I couldn't find it before.

That is the stuff, comes also in quarts.

Says lacquer but its oil based and made to go over their enamel oil based paints.

Going to try some in late summer/fall with low 60 degree weather over rusto topside, paint levels fantastic at this temperature.

Spray can clear coat ain't for me, too hard to make that work to do a whole car.

Clear coat is designed to bring out the metallic, pearl, flake in paint. When using a solid color, adding clear coat is doing nothing but adding more work. A few guys on here have tried rolling metallic with no success. The metallic pulls away from the paint during the roll process. Doing a roll paint job is a lot of work and then adding clear coat just makes it that much more time consuming.
Some people think that adding a clear coat will give your paint more protection. False.
Clear coat "yellows" after time and gets really brittle, especially emamal clear coats. The UV protection in these paints is very weak, that's why I'm a huge promoter of adding a hardener to your mix. It gives you more UV protection, makes your paint more durable and really brings out the shine.
When you go to do a touch up or repair you will have to repaint/clear the entire panel in order to get it to blend correctly. With a solid color (no clear) repairs are easy.
Save your money on the clear and add a hardener.
