/ Painting YM-146 Clearcoat or no clearcoat any advice #11
The clear coat on a car new car I bought, bubbled up, came off in spots, and looked awful. This was a while back, I hope clear coat has been improved since then.I am painting my YM-146 what do you think should I make the last coat a clear coat for protection and shine?
There have been cases of clear coat failure due to improper application. Clear coat is supposed to be applied shortly after the color coat so it fully bonds with it. When done correctly it is rock hard and almost indestructible. If the intent is to clear coat an existing, fully cured finish, there may be products that claim to be OK for this, but I would be very concerned about the condition of the base coat.The clear coat on a car new car I bought, bubbled up, came off in spots, and looked awful.

Yes, there is a rear work light.I also installed a rear LED work-light on the fender. Yanmar looks like they made the fender to add a light since they have an extra hole with a grommet through the fender and under the fender for the wire. I wired it to my head lights which are also custom LED with a plasma cut grill.
I hope that HF sprayer is faster than the similar Wagner unit I used many years ago. A whole afternoon to spray a kitchen. Per coat. Never again!
