Thanks all, back to the store for me today.
For best results, consider purchasing:
1: 3 to 4 bottles of Pledge with Future
2: 2 sealable Tupperware containers large enough to fit your longest and widest models in from bumper to bumper, and some smaller sealable containers for parts
3: a few empty model paint mixing jars
4: plastic eyedroppers
5: cotton swabs or micro-applicator brushes
6: a large container of Windex
7: rubber gloves, disposable
8: paper towels
Fill one container with as much Future as you can to completely coat a whole model body and keep it sealed until used. This is called dipping a model. Pour the rest in at least one paint jar, label it "Future", and store it with your acrylic paints. Take the Windex and pour a second paint jar full of that, label it as "Windex", and store it equally among your paints. Use the cotton swabs, applicators and eyedroppers to add Future to spot areas like your dashboards to give them a reflective appearance. Use the Windex to thin out overage amounts of Future. Once you have a body painted and/or decaled, you can dip the entire car in Future for however long you want (provided the paint/decals have had time to dry...), then with tweezers, forceps, etc... and gloved hands transfer the car body to the other Tupperware "clean room" so it can be sealed up and allowed to drip dry on paper towels for a minimum of 12 hours, max of 24. The gloves are to prohibit fingerprints from getting on the car, the clean room is to keep airborne particles from adhering to the body, and so forth. Same principle applies to the parts containers.To keep the car off the bottom of their containers, place the car on top of an inverted empty spray can or glass paint bottle (don't want the car sticking to the plastic top or any labels...).
Hope this helps!
