Re: JUST bought clearcoat

Matt, I'm no expert but I did spray my MC13. Some recommendations: (1) Carefully review the lierature applicable to the varnish you purchased. For example, I used Interlux Schooner and it calls for a different thinner for spraying than when brushing. (2) Do not spray heavy coats. (3) In the case of Schooner, use 5-6 coats. (4) Keep the varnish containers tightly sealed and do not return "excess" varnish to the can. Do expect varnish to have much of a shelf life after the container is open. (5) Plan on substantial time between coats (roughly 12 hours but see your product's specs). (6) Wet sand between coats.
