I am putting a pearl essence stripe on my hood and need some help doing it. We were looking for something subtle. The plan is to base coat, tape off the stripe, apply the clear with pearl essence, then pull the tape and clear coat. I am using Deltron base with clear. I have been practicing with on smaller panels as I paint other panels, but I have some questions.
The Delton says you can tape after 4 hours. Should I wait longer? How long?
After I apply the pearl essence how long should I wait to put the tape?
After I pull the tape how long should I wait to apply the clear?
After I pull the tape, if there is any tape residue can I wipe the panel with a cleaner like prepsol?
How long should I wait to top coat over the pearl essence?
Anything else I should be concerned about?
