Good to know on the running, however I meant if after your first coat if you wen't for higher coverage than what you did on the first coat?When I dipped my 19" HFPs I used cans not the sprayable quart/gallon PDS. According to Fonzie, you want 50-75% coverage on the first coat which is the technique that I personally used. I know others spray the first coat on very lightly - but I'm such a texture freak I'd be afraid of that causing it - not being sprayed evenly all over the surface. You can reference my pics above though to see my first coat - harder to see coverage being gunmetal gray over graphite pearl though so it may look more covered than it is
The pearlizer is definitely thinner than regular PDS - I learned that when I used it on my wheels. You really have to be careful and watch or else you'll get runs. This was the first time I sprayed Pearlizer with a gun and on the entire car - I did get a very minute run on the trunk lid and another minute one under the passenger side mirror but all in all I'd say that's pretty damn good being my first dip job haha
I'm not sure just how thick they want it applied and have had trouble with orange peel/particulates, I really need to figure out how to fully clean all the nooks in this gun as that's been my texture issue before.
