    Re: applying clear coat?

    Oooo yes the 150 rule best thing I ever started doing with top coats. Well I do it with base coats to. I shoot everything hot now base or top coats. It's the only way to get a thick coat with a hobby gun. [email protected] I got Black to teardrop off an edge on these fork sliders. The pics suck but there's no orange peel and they look sweet except for the tear drop. I do this [email protected] in my cellar if I don't shoot hot I get [email protected] every where I'm going to build a booth but always shoot hot.

    Put the part back in the oven and warm it up to about 150f then shoot the clear it should stick fine. Make sure and coat the thinner areas first because they will cool down faster.

    Is it possible that the powder could be moist? I seem to remember reading that when powder sits and collects moisture, it will clump together and not hold a charge. Please correct me if i'm wrong

    Its an already PCed part, the powder is stored in a dry place, and in a container that is sealed. maybe i should try a new dry place though ?

    started a topic applying clear coat?

    applying clear coat?

    Ok heres the deal, I have a hobby gun. Nothing special but it works. Im having a really hard time getting the clear coat to hang on a part. When I try to apply the clear it will not go on even, and it will not attatch to the part being sprayed. Can anyone offer some suggestions ? also one other problem im having is getting the coat to come out even. My gun seems to hold powder then dump a big splotch on the part ? any ideas what i have done wrong? air pressure ? or what ?

    Thanks for the help.
