Correct! The stuff gunked up the second it hit the base coat.SO you ended up not using the flat enamel clearcoat?
Using nothing.The majority of the scratches/blemishes were due to the factory coating being scratched. Worse comes to worse, I'll just repaint (easier next time The flat I used is called "Painter's Touch" by Rustoleum. It is just slightly lighter in color compared to factory. I will keep it flat.What did you use to protect the paint? Are you keeping the paint flat?
I would imagine a gloss, unless a lighter color like white or tan, would show the scratches more. I'll have better info in a few months I would guess. Taking my time working on the radio/climate control, but I'll post pics on that when complete.I was wondering if the flat surface scratches more than a glossy surface. Thanks for the tips on the project!
