Awesome, thanks for the video!
I was just about to search back through the post to see about if you can put the decals on afterwards, then re-coat it and sure enough, you answered that too
Thank you again, as soon as I can get a body ready I'm gonna try it.

how do i use future floor polish to polish my model cars?? ive never used a polish befor and i would like to try it!

It's NOT polish, it's an acrilyc clearcoat ,,, close to any acrylic model paint only it's thin.
I've tried it , I'll stick with Tamiya acrilyc clear ,,, MUCH easier to work with.
I'm not saying don't try it. Lots of people use it and swear by it ,, just my personal opinion.

I've tried it and definitely don't like it. I tried it with an air brush once and never could get enough on for a decent shine. I brushed it which worked better,but I could see brush strokes in it. I had one success,but it later developed spider web cracks on the hood,top and trunk. It has it's uses. But a clear coat over a nice paint job is definitely not one of them. I would rather go back to Testors enamel clear than give future another try.

I am obviously doing something wrong. I cant get it glossy. Either brushing on or airbrushing. Have not tried dipping parts yet. I do have the proper product though. Ideas on what i am doing wrong?
put it on very thin , don't slather it on, also use a soft brush.
you can add coats if needed

I just got a new airbrush and want to use "Future" floor wax to clear coat.....I didn't think this would be such a big deal....except I can't find it in the stores. So, my question is......Where can I get it???? and is the "Pledge" floor finish with "Future" the same thing.
Thanks in advance

Yes, it's now under the Pledge label.
"Pledge Floor Care - Tile and Vinyl Floor Finish with Future Shine" is the one you're looking for, specifically.
Yeah, took me a minute to figure out which one it was, too.

would it be best to brush or airbrush future on a car does it need to be thinned down or spray straight thru airbrush if thinned what do you thin it with?

Anytime I have used Future, I sprayed it through the airbrush, no thinning.

Older bottles of future sometimes do need to be thinned. Just use water with a drop of windex.
