I am currently cleaning up all the tinwork on a very nice original Bush Hog D4-10 and I want to clear coat the original paint to preserve it after I get done rubbing it all out. 1 question I have is what do I do to the paint surface to prep it for clear coat? Do I just wipe it down with a paint prep or scuff it with 600 grit sand paper? This is the factory paint from the mid 60's. I am going to get some paint matched to touch up a few little nicks before I do the clear coat.
Need Clear Coat Advice.

Brian, I suggested a product in one of Will's threads. I think it was Owatrol or onatrol that was a clear coating used in marine apps. There is also a product called penetrol but the reviews aren't quite as good. A lot of the hit and miss guys are using it as a protective coating to preserve original finishes. I think a product like that would work better than the clearcoat. Maybe do a search over on smokstak and you should find discussions about it.

Has anyone clear coated over old enamel paint?
