i heard that u can use clear coat with this...what is a good one to use?i originally thought a single stage paint job would be easier when i purchased this paint ,but have since read its actually easier for a base and clear...so if i can use a clear coat that would be great.any suggestions on which one to use and the cost.its for a vw bug ,also is one gallon of paint enough to paint my bug inside out including trunk?thanx for any help guys.
It is extremely difficult to make helpful suggestions when pieces of the puzzle are missing. I will assume you are referencing OMNI MTK Single stage because they do have more then one? Will assume it is a solid color? As has been asked do you already have the SS?
Depending on Type and Color might want to consider a CLEAR MIX with MTK Single stage on the last coat. MC161 Clear works real well with OMNI MTK Single stage if mixed 50/50 for the last coat. They both use the same hardner and are mixed seperately THEN combined to final spray on last coat. This works exceptionally well with Red or Black.
This method is in the OMNI MTK Product Sheet:
Metallics and Pearls are best if done with BC/CC. If you go with MBC make sure you have a sealer coat on or at least all the primer is one color to get best hiding and coverage.
thanks for your replys ...i already have the omni single stage paint its called( mae )acrylic enamel ...it is also a solid color non-metallic its a stock vw L-11 pastel green, i had heard that u can use a clear coat with it.i cant exchange it cause it was mail order...i will just use it without the clear coat and see how it holds up ....hopefully i dont make to many mistakes when shooting it, i heard its harder to repair single stage versus b/c.thanx again for the help and this great website forum.
I was afraid of that.
MAE is about the same cost as the MTK but feel the MTK URETHANE SS is a MUCHO Better product for the money. The Clear Mix as suggested works rather well with the MTK. It is not recommended with the MAE.
I hope you got the MAE with the Hardner?
BEFORE you use that OMNI MAE make sure you get the PRoduct sheets.
MAE without hardner:
MAE with hardner:
The Hardners will keep the MAE open longer so that is cures out faster while linking. The Hardners are definitely recommended but beware they contain ISOCYANATES. To keep from rehashing what has already been stated about the ISOS look through older post on this forum for Mask - breathing protection and such.
