Question about Cars & Trucks
I guess the real question is will it stand up to the heat when the baking process begins. Looking to powder coat, or paint like an automobile. I know the powder coating sticks to metal, but you never know the things they do these days.
When you paint wood all you do is prep it then paint it u dont have to bake it ive never heard of anyone baking wood after its painted

SOURCE: clear coat seems to be
this has been copied and pasted from a googe search
Hi,i recently used a DUPLI-COLOR CLEARCOAT TOUCH UP PAINT on 2 small areas where the clearcoat had peeled off when i replaced an emblem on my 1995 Deville.It is a bit noticeable when light shines at a certain angle--but more importantly, IT STOPS THE CLEARCOAT FROM PEELING OFF ANYMORE.

sanding really dont matter .. I usually sand only one direction and watch what your doing to the surface of the clear coat .. you can actually watch the orange peel disappear..use a damp rag once in a while to wipe the area your sanding so you can see your surface to make sure your getting it perfect .. this is the way to get a super job. if you use a rag to wipe the surface this also helps you see if your getting enough off or not .. use 2000 grit when doing this it makes it easier to buff off when your all done.. then go to your polishing compound not rubbing compound . hope this helps and good luck .. I love clear coating its really nice if you take your time sanding it and getting the surface perfect and with no imperfections... holler if you need more.. Jerry

if you have sanded the areas with 400 grit sandpaper already, the next thing you want to do is move up to a higher grit paper like 800 and them 1000 and smooth out the area. After that, wet sand the area until it is smooth and feathered. Wipe the area down with a dry cloth. Luckily, the primer just smoothed out, but if not, apply a thin coat and allow to dry. Last, apply the basecoat, let it sit 24 hours, wet sand it, clean the area, and then clear it.

Well it is a common problem with Toyota paint jobs. Unfortunatly a simple wax wont stop this from continuing all though it will hide it from site for a while. The problem has to do with the factory paint job, so a repaint (by Maco or any other botom dollar body shop) will only be a band-aid fix, and will most likely rear it's ugly head somewhere down the line. If you intend to sell the car this may be a way to make it look sharp and easier to sell. **** if you intend to keep it I would not sugest it as you will most definatly be dissapointed as a repaint is only a temporary fix for this issue.
To thoroughly fix this issue you would need to have the car professionally stripped (at least down to the collor coat) and repainted. This will be expensive, and most likely will cost more than it is worth for a car that old. I would start by checking to see if there was a factory recall on the paint for that year, make, and model.
