    has anyone used clear rattle cans to clear a cabinet once it is primed and painted? If so, what tips do you suggest? Thanks.

    I’ve used rattle can clear on all 3 cabinets I’ve done. Never had a problem. I like it. They don’t come out as glossy as the ones u see on here that spray them with guns. I give them 3 light coats about 10 minutes apart.

    Thanks. Do you spray over the decals too?

    You need to test before clearing decals. Some will curl and/or run, others won't.

    My pins are 70’s Bally’s. My cabinets are all Pinball Pimp stencils. The only decals I have are on the aprons and clear before applying and don’t clear after.

    Hey there! Got a moment?
