Keep spray gun 6-10 inches from substrate to avoid problems associated with air entrapment. 4. Allow to dry overnight before exposing to the weather.

BLENDING PROCEDURES: 1. Before blending a panel with clear, the blend area must be compounded and cleaned thoroughly with a quality pre-paint cleaner. Do not leave compound residue on surface. 2. Apply wet coat of clear over painted area and slightly beyond. Allow 5-10 minutes flash. 3. Apply second wet coat of clear 4-6 inches beyond first coat. Allow 5-10 minute flash. 4. Reverse blend the third coat by starting 3-5 inches beyond the dry edge and spray into the center of the painted area.
