@ Candy - "I told him it should get clearer as it dries" what's this all about? Is that what Delta have said the product will do? Regarding mixture - I was told it was to be 12/3, but there is always half a cup left wasted
Do you put it on thick? Did you get runs or streaks where there wasn't enough chemical on the lens?
Thanks for the input guys.
You can't spray without overspray. I mask off with tape and paper just like when I'm painting. I also move the vehicle to where my rig is set up instead of trying to do it next to any other vehicles. The Speedokote is dust free in 2-5 minutes and fully cured in 15 minutes on a sunny day. It can also be cured with a UV lamp on a cloudy day. I use their clear coat for painting as it has similar properties. If you got cloudy results from clear coat, the main issues are usually humidity, wrong reducer for the temperature range, or applying additional coats before the previous one has flashed off completely. The other thing that can produce a cloudy look is a phenomena called "die back" which usually indicates a low quality clear coat was used.
