Scale I Build

Found 1 result

  1. Life events had keep me away from the workbench for the past three years, however the pandemic has freed up my time and I`m returning to the several stalled projects that have been laying idle. Hence, I have two questions. 1) One project in particular was shot in MCM red enamel. I had wet sanded the orange peel out and was waiting for it to dry/cure before clear coating. Three years later, upon pulling the red body out of retirement I see that the enamel laid down real nicely and all the parts have a nice gloss sheen. Upon discovering this I`m wondering if I need to clear-coat the body. I mean with the passing of three years I`m certain the enamel has adequately gassed off and cured. So should I clear-coat it to protect the finish? 2) Because this project is a race car it has quite a number of sponsor decals as well as some graphics that I had custom replicated for the project. Before I stopped on project three years ago I had applied the decals/graphics to the body. Do the decals need a clear-coat on top of them for protection?
