SOLAR FIRE Please.
Quoted from Outsidedge:
YUP! We are working on improving that. We are having the same issue my MMR has. ... but we will get it dialed in for the opacity on inserts.
so can you translate in English for me.
i have a taxi hardtop i purchased and plan on installing over the Holidays should I be concerned? please advise.
Quoted from Skypilot:
Please do not try to clearcoat a hardtop. They are not designed to be clear coated. It is a poly carbonate with a special coating on top to help the playfield resist wear.
i belive they are talking about clear coating the sanded play field and inserts. not the hardtop itself. unless you recommend not clear coating the sanded play field before hardtop install.. i believe your install vid said sanding inserts and play field up to 2000 was sufficient . and cuping inserts not an issue only raise inserts need to be sanded flat.
Quoted from Skypilot:
Sanding the inserts down to a high-grade polish to make them look like glass is a bit more work. Pro to that is no other chemicals have been introduced between the hardtop and the playfield. The con to that is the amount of work. The pro to clearing the insert is less work is involve. You do not have to sand them down as much. Also by clearing the inserts you're helping to seal the edges and keep dust from coming up between the insert and the hardtop. The only con that I know of is any concerns about outgassing.
thanks for your reply I've restored many a muscle car and know the work involved wet sanding between coats. i also know the results it can bring. i feel those that haven't sanded before don't understand how you can polish by sanding. i felt response from someone who has installed a hardtop would be best and I am glad you explained it well.
Quoted from northvibe:
