After getting a nice gloss black finish, ready for wet sanding/polishing, I made a major mistake.... I decided to add a couple of coats of clear gloss enamel. Following directions, I applied the Rustoleum Clear Enamel over the Rustoleum Gloss Black Enamel.
Well - It didn't work! The clear was not compatible over the gloss black for some unknown reason
it started to lift the black paint that had dried over 48 hours, and had been lightly sanded before applying the clear.
I let the mess set for 24 hours, and proceeded to try sanding it off...didn't work, just gummed up the sanding disc
I came close to going at the box with a sledge hammer
But - instead I tried some paint remover, and it does work with multiple applications without affecting the epoxy at all, just the other coatings are softened. It's a long slow process, and pretty discouraging, considering I could have skipped the clear and just finished the gloss black as I did very successfully with my Encores
I am going to give this project a rest for awhile, till I feel like applying multiple coats of paint remover gel, over several days.
