This is a great product that is easy to use. Covers and flows well. Can use over decals to clear and gives a high gloss finish. Easy to buff out any fine trash. I use 1000 to 1500 grit and soapy water before the final buff. Using 3m polishing compound.

I'm not sure how the other reviewers are getting such good results with this clear coat, but it is disappointing after it cures. The finish is not what I was expecting and it required additional work to get it right.

Yes it is premixed and very easy to spray, but this presents TWO issues: you get less clear coat for the money since the reducer is mixed in; it is so runny that you go through the can very fast. This means you have to use more product to get a single coat on. Additionally, the coats will be very thin.

After it cured for 3 days there was SIGNIFICANT fish eye in the paint, even though it laid down very flat and look very glossy while curing. Another brand I used laid down flat AND cured flat.

This clear coat also does not like other kinds of paints, namely the rattle can touch up paints (which are thinned automotive paints, not spray paint) and cannot be put over lightly cured paint. It is best to let the paint cure for a day otherwise it cracks and peels the paint underneath.

This is cheap and only good for cheap jobs.

      Comments about Duplicolor Paint Shop, Gloss Clear, 32 oz. Quart:

      I was painting a vw trike and ran out of normal clearcoat with 1 fender left so I bought this junk to save buying more clear, hardener and reducer. Finish was so inferior to the rest I had to take it down and do it over with quality product. Don't waste your money.

                  I myself couldn't get the gloss anywhere close to the rest of the car. I ended up having to apply to the entire fender because it caused flaking where I tried to blend with the rest. I am having to go with a different product that unfortunately Advance doesn't carry.

                    I had to thin the primer and the top coat to get consistent coverage with my HVLP. Can this also be thinned?

                      Hi John, am glad to assist! This gloss coat comes as a thin coat and thinning it further might lose it original gloss. To answer your question, yes, it can be thinned.

                    Will this clear need a catalyst hardener added? As stated under specifications - "Drying Time-Cured/Complete: Dry To Touch In 30 Minutes / Handle In 1 Hour" is that to imply full cure is oxygen activated within 1Hr?
