I'm repainting my car on Tuesday and was wondering what you guys would recommend for the number of coats of clear for max shine without blocking the basecoat.

normally on standard paint jobs you would only need 2 coats of clear. most people think that more is better....it is not...the more coats you lay down, the more problems you might havein the future. typically one of the problems would be de-lamination of the clear....

2 coats min.
3 coats max
