***thread title was supposed to be "repaint over original finish"**** auto correct is a pain!
So I have been doing some research because I want to refinish a 540r that I repainted last year. I accidentally bumped it pretty hard... And ruined my paint job. I came across this company who makes high quality automotive spray cans and something called a 2k primer and 2k clear. Kustom Canz is the brand and their colors are outstanding looking. I can't seem to find a bad thing about them.
The guitar has its original urethane paint under my repaint. I can easily strip off my repaint, I've done this once before with the same brand paint I used in the past. I used duplicolor perfect match primer, and base coat. I don't know what type of primer the perfect match is. But the base coat is an acrylic lacquer. The clear I used was minwax gloss clear lacquer.
So my question is... Should I use an adhesion promoter instead of a primer since urethane is essentially plastic? Or just stick with an automotive primer? The kustom Canz site does not specify what the base coat paint is... I am going to call them tomorrow... They recommend using their 2k primer in a can which is a primer with a catalyst activator, but they currently are out of stock... And it's $20 a can. The base coat requires a 2k clear which is also a clear with an activateable catalyst. This system seems amazing. I did a youtube search and it looks like a 2k clear makes anything extremely durable... Even regular rust-oleum spray cans.
