    Use this kit with Eastwood's premium single-stage urethane paints or other manufacturer's base-coat systems. May even be used over factory finishes in good condition. Rat Rod Flat Clear is also ideal for interior parts, underhood components, hobbies and crafts.

    Clean surfaces of all contaminants. Abrade surface to be painted with a minimum of 320-grit sandpaper, working up to a 600-grit for maximum adhesion. Re-clean surface. After shaking paint, mix 3 parts paint with 1 part activator. Use caution mixing materials as paint may begin to gel after 2 hours at 70°F. HVLP gun setting: 8-10 PSI, with a 1.4mm-1.8mm tip. This color is formulated to give complete coverage in 2-3 coats. Allow 10 minutes flash time between coats; should be tack-free in 45-60 minutes, with full cure in 18 hours.


    (Q) How much paint do I need?
    (A) Typically one gallon per car. If you are also painting jambs, under the hood, or the trunk, use 2 gallons. For large cars and pickup trucks, use 2 gallons. Number of coats, prep and application methods will affect the amount of paint required.
