How to Apply an Car Acrylic Top Coat
- Clean the entire area with Repco Wax and Grease Remover and wipe dry with a clean cloth.
- Thin your selected Repco Acrylic Repair Colour with Repco Multipurpose Thinners or Repco Acrylic Thinners.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
