Mix Clearcoat Car Paint
Decide between an overall clear coat or a spot clear coat. Overall clear coats are used for painting an entire car. Spot clear coats are used for touch-up work.
Pour a ratio of 4 to 1. You will be using 4 oz. of clear coat for every 1 oz. of acrylic hardener. Once you pour in the acrylic hardener, the chemical reaction will begin to activate the paint. Plan on making 20 percent more clear coat car paint than you will need.
Pour in the same amount of acrylic reducer as you did acrylic hardener. The acrylic reducer will keep your paint thin enough to go through your paint gun.
Stir the mixture. You need to use this mixture within a few hours. If left out for several hours, the mixture will harden.
Place your filter cone on top of the paint gun's opening. Pour the mixture into your paint gun and you are ready to begin to clear coat your car.
