Polish and/or Clear Coat

Recommended Posts


I've finished laying down my enamel paint and am not sure if I should lightly sand/polish and then clear coat, or clear coat and then polish, or one or the other 🙂 Any suggestions? I do have to sand out a couple dust specs regardless. There will be no decals.

Thanks and take care,

I used Testors Bright Lime #1192. It doesn't say metallic but it does sparkle.

Take care,


That is a metallic.  You can sand metallics but I'm not gonna start a heated debate about that.  Just if you do just fix the problems areas and re-coat.
