I just completed my first backglass Krylon Triple Thick sealing and touch up.... and thank you all for this place and the wealth of knowledge you all have provided here in the many posts!
I read as many threads and watched as many youtube videos as I could before starting as this scared the heck about me. I followed Clay's guide as well... http://www.pinrepair.com/restore/index1.htm#touch
First, Krylon triple thick is amazing! I emptied a can on this backglass with several coats. 24 hours later I felt so much more confident after it dried, everything was locked in place under a crystal clear layer and I was ready to start touching up. It is crazy how well that worked. NICE!
My backglass was pretty bad... anything yellow or pink was about 65%-75% gone (not to mention half of a guys face in orange)... you could see the bulbs. Even the black of the tires was cracked everywhere.
Following Clay's guide and the general consensus in posts that Createx paints were the way to go, I spent many hours touching up one color at a time and experimenting with transparent paints, making opaque paints transparent etc, wiping away, trying again... and again.... what a giant time consuming pain this was. Also, he wasn't kidding - the acrylic paint retarder is key to getting the best translucency -without it, don't even start. Minor note - it also makes it take almost 2 days to dry since that was its intended purpose.
But in the end I am happy with the result as it WAY better than it was!
So the question that I have now that can't find the answer to....
Now that it is touched up with Createx and I am happy with it, do I seal over all of it again with Krylon triple thick, or just leave it with the acrylics over the Krylon as the acrylic isn't going anywhere anytime soon?
