    Question for the painters

    Can you use an automotive clear coat over a rattle can paint job?

    It depends on the type of paint. Because of EPA, most rattle can paint is going to be made from weak materials which could soften and bubble from the solvents in the better paint system. It would be better to use the recommended primers and base coat.

    In town, we have a place that can custom mix rattle cans with additives like hardeners and such. I would see if your local paint suppliers can make a custom rattle can!
