Thanks for the info and pics, so will it go over any paints like duplicolor, rust oleum, model master, testors and Tamyia paints?

Also I don't use airbrush so as applying coats is it the same time period as using a fan brush ?

Ismael, It is safe over any type or brand of paint. I also have friends that get great results putting it on with a brush as well. Put it on let dry and put on more until you get the shine you want.

Keep in mind I have heard that Pledge floor shine does not stick on bare plastic. I suggest you get some cheap acrylic craft paint. 59 cents for two ounces at Walmart and brush that on let dry 15 minutes or use a hairdryer then apply the pledge. Let dry. A fluffy wide brush is best. Apply in thin coat then add more thin coats each until desired shine. Then go rinse it off in the sink and repeat. Do this as many times as you want until you feel comfortable with the results.

I don't brush it on personally but I would continue to put thin mist coats on it. Here is my tutorial in case you have not seen it. You will see how I start and it is flat and gets shinier and shinier with each coat. I do realize my video is done using an airbrush but applying it is the same layer by layer. I generally ise 1 1/2 to two ounces of floor polish before getting a shine on it. Maybe this vid will help.

Hey guys,
I recently used rust-oleum gloss enamel paint for the body. Has anyone used a wet sanding/polishing kit (3600-12000grit) while using the pledge "future" floor finish? If so did you do the wet sanding/polishing process after body paint has dried and Before applying the clear? OR applying the clear and than going threw the sanding process? I do not own an air brush so the clear coat would be applied by hand.

Thanks hopefully someone can shoot some advice my way!
