Discussion in 'The Garage' started by **DONOTDELETE**, Dec 25, 2002.

    is there any special way to do this? there are no instructins on the boxes, just to keep it below 30 psi, is there any special cleaning instructions? should i add thinner?

    I have no idea what to thin POR-15 with. I wanted to ask what T-case you have in your Tahoe.

    I've sprayed POR 15 without thinning....

    Spray one med. to lite coat....let it flash off.....1 hour.
    Then Spray a med. coat over that.

    POR15 Flows extremely well.....
    at first your finish will look lumpy.....but It does flatten out.
    So be careful, It RUNS.

    Thin at 5% ratio. Spray pressure s/b 30 to 35 psi for high gloss and 20 to 25 psi for lower gloss. You must thin with the POR solvent but you can clean up with laquer thinner. You MUST wear a real respriator when spraying this stuff. If you get any on your skin and do not get it off before it dries you will wear it for a week or two. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif
