HOW DOES YOUR CLEAR LOOK------USUALLY IT IS YOUR CLEAR THAT STARTS TO GET YELLOWISH OR CLOUDY---AND THAT MAKES YOU THINK YOUR FLAKE DOES NOT SHINE LIKE IT SHOULD----MAYBE YOU NEED A GOOD BUFF JOB-------OR AT WORST WET SAND AND RE-CLEAR-----HOW OLD IN THE PAINT?????

just wet sand it a lil and buff it out it will look like new but dont wet sand to much most the flake is in the clear
he already did it-----------but the flake should always be under the clear and under the candy---not on top----------well for a really flake job anyway------ :biggrin:

too funny. not many use HOK clear, reason... not the greatest of products. most folks stick to PPG. most of us know a "little" about things. im not a painter, but have had enough paints and seen enough paint jobs (homie owns a body shop, club people, know a lot of painters) to see HOK clear not work as well as other clears.

I'm not a painter and dont know a whole lot about different paints....but I have a issue with this statement. You say: "hok is the oldest custom paint maker in the country , hell they originated it . " Trust me they are not the oldest custom paint maker in the country, and then to further it you say they originated custom painting. But then in your signature you say they have been the best since 1956. If they have been the best since 56 who was better before them? Or does that 1956 mean they have been in business since 1956? Also how old are you?
