I need a clearcoat suggestion
« on: April 09, 2012, 06:51:02 AM »
One that's neither oil NOR alcohol based and is still very clear. And affordable (I can't do powdercoating at home even if I could justify the expense).

Minwax® Polycrylic it's water based and has a fairly low odor.

More info from a previous post

"minwax polyacrylic. cleans up with water, dries in 30 minutes. recoat every 30 minutes. I do about three coats then you can handle it in an hour and assemble the pedal. I let the pedal sit upside down on the knobs and the switches for 24 hours to cure. "
