Testors Glosscote over Dupli-Color lacquers?
Posted by amt68 on Monday, January 27, 2020 11:57 AM

Does anyone have any experience using Testors Glosscote over Dupli-Color base coats? Just wondering if there are compatibility issues with Testors Glosscote over Dupli-Color. I've had good success with Testors and have struggled with Dupl-Color clears which have required a great deal of wet sanding before the final polish.

Testors Glosscote will work fine over Dupli-Color paints provided you use them properly!  Several mist coats to start with and use heavier coats afterwards.  Do not use a heavy coat to start with!

Thanks for the information mrmike. And is it okay to wet sand between the mist coats?
