Quoted from PinballAir:

I just cleared and touched up a high speed. The frisket was lifting the paint so i was forced to do the lock down coat.
I would touch up one area only to find i now had to touch up something else.
I have everything needed to mix and spray except the clear.
I have only used spray max because of the ease of use. I generally will unload the can even on lockdown coat because i will spend months touching up. I sand it down afterwards anyway so it will not be too thick. The more you sand, the straighter the playfield.
High speed took 3 cans. That is roughly $70. I know buying the 2 part in cans and mixing is cheaper but where i do one playfield a year, the cans would expire long before i got to use it all.
The results are all through this thread.
I too wait for the weather and spray outside with protective gear on.
If you can find the volcano owners club you can see my volcano done with spray may sprayed outside.

That volcano looked great. You use a whole can on 1 layer of lockdown? Or you somehow keep it for multiple applications of lockdown after each repaint?

I go with entire can at each spraying. I do it in multiple coats, but empty the can.
Others have preserved it in the refrigerator. Look for the recent Flash restoration thread. I think OP kept it up to 2 weeks and it was still usable.

For me, the touch ups can take months. Rather than have the clear harden up in the can i just unload it on the playfield.
As i said , I use 2 to 3 cans total. For the final coat i like to have a can on deck in case i need it.

Going to be starting my first playfield restoration this spring on a 1971 Gottlieb Lawman. Seeing a lot of good information on here, so I'm going to give it a try the right way! Will also be starting a thread for the restoration, but first I'm commenting on all the threads that have helped my learning thus far so I can stay active on them and continue my education!

Looks like a very good first project. Good luck
