    going to be PC for the first time. i'll be using more than one coat. should i cure each coat fully before the other or half and then coat again? i may be doin 3 coats--bright white, trans-red,and clear.

    for the firts time you should do some scrap pieces to get the hang of it.
    every one has a diferent way to do it
    what's best for you ,it's what works for you
    here is what I do
    pre heat to 150
    powder first half from top to middle
    cure for 15 minutes
    let cool to 150
    powder secound half from bottom to middle
    cure for 15 minutes
    let cool to 150
    powder the clear and fully cure
    I've been able to make some great triple fades with clear this way
    the trick is to know when to stop or you'll end up screwing it .
    P.S if you want a metallic red you might want to rethink red over white
    red has to go over chrome to achive metallic red .

      sorry i made it unclear. i'm not making a fade, i'm just putting 3 coats on. i heard that the bright white helps the stick out more. but thank you for the reply. i'll use your advice for the future when i'm ready to try fade jobs. thanks.
