    Default Final coat.

    Applied the final coats of acrylic lacquer to the tinwork and some ancillaries this afternoon, didn't come out as clear or as good as I hoped, but acceptable I guess. I'll give it a few more days then sand the tank and spray over with 2k clear. Not the done thing, technically, but plenty do it, so we'll see how it goes.

    Looks good and glossy for acrylic lacquer straight out of the gun. If you going to paint 2k clear why didnt u paint it with 2k to start with ? if it reacts you will have to start again.

    Because it would have cost me $500-$600 for the paint, hardener and thinners. The same amount of acrylic lacquer is around $100. Plus I had enough to do the job anyway.
