Penetrol and Brightside?

Post by javdiaz9 on May 29th 2011, 8:08 pm

Hi I'm new to all of this and I am about to start on my 73 VW Bus. I was thinking about spraying Brightside and adding penetrol to let it flatten out.
Is this a good idea or should I just use the Brightside and thin it down with mineral sprits?

I'm new as well. I've researched brightside for a while, and have seen posts where people indicated they used penetrol and brightside with good results. I have read a reply by an interlux rep that advised against it, saying Interlux does not recommend using penetrol. I know oftern there are uses fro products that work fine without manufacturer approval, but I'm on the fence about that myself-especially due to the cost of the stuff.

The best thing to do is get yourself a old hood or trunk lid and use that for experimenting. If it goes bad then no big deal. If you try it on your car and things go bad then you have a mess on your hands.

63falconvert is right , get an old hood ,fender etc,and do a little experimenting and find what works and what dosen't.I would just thin with ms at 3:1 if your are spraying or thin with a manufacturer recommended thinner.

Most any rep will go against anything that is not in their little box and this is WAY outside as most here will agree on. Your choice but the suggestion to get an old hood and practice on it is very good advice. 3 paint to 1 thinner sounds like a good place to start from also.

I know this is an old thread but I'm down to my finishing coats and am considering adding Penetrol to Brightside to help it level better that it has been (I am now wet sanding out the brush strokes from the previous coats). Internet research has been 50/50, with some saying it will kill the shine and not be as hard and others claiming that its perfectly fine. I do plan on polishing my final coat so maybe the shine isnt an issue but i dont know.

Is there anyone here that has used Penetrol/Brightside and can report on the result?
