Question paint question

is there any issues with spraying 2pac clear over acrylic?

my car has been resprayed in acrylic but not yet cleared. i was thinking of doing it 2pac clear for extra durability and gloss.

also is 2pac any harder to spray than acrylic

thanks

Rob

Re: paint question

From what i gather you cannot paint acrylic on enamel without the use of an isolater which for you is pointless as being at the end of the job,if you want more durability & gloss then put a lot more coats of clear on,there`s nothing worste then have`g to start all over again :(
2 pac and enamel 2pac is 2 differents paints ? yes
As i`ve heard that 1 does preperation in acrylic and finishes off in two pack as a means of make`g money (one being cheaper then the other)
