This is so important, I am sorry, I am going to beat a dead horse until it whimpers. You did just say "mix your ready to spray clear to the equal amount of reducer.So if you have a half pint of clear add a half pint of reducer." that is OVER a hundred percent reduction! And that is not a good "barrier" for cut thrus as it is full of solvent and going to do just what you don't want to do, introduce MORE solvent to the sensitive area!
I understand about the blend area, I have never done that as there are products "colorless basecoat" that do just that. But I can't for the life of me understand over reducing the clear to correct a sensitive area.
Clear me up (if you will pardon the pun) on this, what am I missing. I don't paint every day anymore and I certainly have forgotten a bunch, so help me out here. Is the over reduced clear then dusted on with super light coats and the solvent is flashing off basically before it really hits the panel? I just don't get this as I have never seen it on any tech sheet either.
