  • Clear coat problem

    Ive been using the hobby gun for a lotta pieces and parts and I am now starting to try clear over a color. After the first coat of a standard color is cured I try to spray clear and not enough sticks to coat the part. I thought up two reasons. One, the gun is too weak to charge the clear enough to stick because of the thickness of the first coat, and two, not a good ground but I checked that. Also I tried spraying when the part was hot and that worked pretty good, but I want to be able to do it the other way.

    If anyone is not having this problem or if you can help me that would be great,

    The clear can be a bit of a pain. Try useing more air and creating a fog over the part. There is less attraction on the second coat so direct spraying can cause more problems than good.With the fogging the clear attracts nicely.
