How to Apply an Car Acrylic Top Coat

  1. Clean the entire area with Repco Wax and Grease Remover and wipe dry with a clean cloth.
  2. Thin your selected Repco Acrylic Repair Colour with Repco Multipurpose Thinners or Repco Acrylic Thinners.
  3. Apply 2 to 3 coats of colour allowing 10 minutes flash off time between coats. For spot repairs extend each coat beyond the edge of the previous coat blending into the surrounding finish.
  4. Your selected Repco Acrylic Colour can be pressurised in a convenient aerosol pack. Apply several light coats allowing 5 minutes between coats in an even overlapping pattern building up thickness gradually. Avoid heavy coats which may run or sag.
  5. For metallic colours allow 1 hour drying prior to application of 2 to 3 coats of Repco Top Coat Clear. For solid colours, Repco Top Coat Clear is not required; however it can be applied to enhance the finish. Repco Top Coat Clear is also available in handy aerosol can.
  6. After 24 hours drying (longer if possible) wet sand the area with 1500 to 2000 grit Wet/Dry paper using warm soapy water, then buff with Repco Machine Grade Cutting Compound and Polish with Repco Eclipse Car Care products.
