[Urgent] Clear coat, decals, and polishing

12 August 2012 - 10:45 AM

I just applied several coats of testors model master paint to the body of the car I am making. Now, it says the paint is a two part system and can be clear coated in two hours. I have some decals I want to apply, and plan on polishing and waxing the body. So, what order and time frame do I do everything in?

Clear coat, polish, wax, then decals?

Or decals, clear coat, polish, then wax?

Or clear coat, decals, wait a week, more clear, then polish, then wax?

I am so confused. And do I have to apply the clear in 2 hours?

How can I achieve this effect?

Hi all,
I am building a revell Audi r8 and I want the taillights to look like this:



Basically a black background with the red q-shaped lights.

I have tamiya clear red. Any ideas?
