micher t- i saw in one of your posts earlier that you use laqcuers for some of your fades and custom effects. have you tried any of the intercoat clears for this yet. i use PPG's DBC5ooo for all my blends/fades/shadows and have had great luck with it.its basically just a clear basecoat that you tint however you like. all the benifits of the base coats and gives you a tremendous ability to really burn in a blend. . any waay . .i just like talk'n shop with other pro's i have seen alot of your work and have always been been impressed with your attention to detail, still have a copy of that article in HOTBOAT somewhere.
one other thing what is your paint system of preferance . . i have been a PPG guy since day one.
