question for refinishing

  1. Hey guys,

    I'm planning on refinishing my SX bass using reranch's nitro aerosol. However, I'd also like my bass to be durable. Would I be able to use a nitro color coat, and then use a poly clear coat? If so, do you guys have any recommendations for products?

    Thanks, I really appreciate this forum. I've been doing a lot of reading and i'm learning a tonnn.

    I've never had good luck with putting poly over laquer. But I have have great success with putting laquer over poly. I assume it has something to do with the fact that laquer is still in motion, albeit ultraslow motion, after it "hardens" where as poly isnt.
  3. yeah that what i've deducted.
