decal clear coat


Post by jd222 » Sun Apr 09, 2006 2:52 pm

I am putting the finishing toouches on my 59 FLH restoration and have applied the flh and patent decals to my newly painted oil tank. What can I cover these with? Do I bring it back to the painter for clearcoat, and will this screw with the water decals? Or is there a home remedy to use? Thanks for any help!

Best regards,


Clear Coat

Originally they were not clear coated over or anything. I don't think they lasted very long that way though. You can have them clear coated with a eurethane clear with activator in it. You need to wait a couple of days after applying the decal to clear coat it so the water is all evaporated from under the applique. The first coat of clear should be put on fairly dry as not to saturate the decal and make it come off. Wait at least 15 min. before following with several LIGHT coats of clear making sure you wait 15-20 min between coats. TAKE YOUR TIME.
