Re-paint question, decals.

Postby bobscogin » Sat Apr 06, 2019 5:58 pm

I'm refinishing the sheet metal on a '63 Scat and Pacer, and would like to replicate the original graphics. I'm using a base coat/clear coat urethane system. The plan is to apply the main color and white tank stripes using base coat, then apply the decals, then clear coat. Anyone have experience clear coating the water applied type of decals? I've done it successfully in the past using acrylic enamel, but was wondering if the catalized urethane paints would "lift" the decals. What's a good source for the decals? Advice is greatly appreciated.

Decals can be purchased at Harley and include full instructions!
You will be fine!
After the decals are applied, use a very light and dry coat of clear.
Let it cure fully.
Then apply a second light and dry coat of clear.
Let it cure fully.
Then you can proceed with a final wet and heavy coat of clear!
