PPG Clears

Kinda depends on what you're doing and how much area you have to coat . . as well as what will you want for a final finish . . Most of the production shops use 2000, 3000, and 4000 w/ DCH3070-85-95 that are created for those coatings.

2021/DCX61/DT is usually used for custom topcoating that will be leveled and polished. You might use DX 8 nominally, but I don't recommend DX 9 for anything except the vandalproof clears in gloss, semi-gloss and Dead flat. Normally I only used 2060 flat with DX 9 and it gets so hard in 24 hours (@70) that it won't even sand (Vandalproof)

However, on my own Street Rod I used DX 9 in the 2021 on the front
fenders to rock proof them. Seemed to work out pretty well for the most part (You must also harden your base coat w/ DX57 or 5% by Volume DCX61-The base coat must be as hard as the topcoat) . . but it does make it a lot harder to fix when the sooner or later rears it's ugly head . .

    Hey everyone using PPG clear. Question DCU 2002 or DCU 2012 and DCX61 or DCX9. Pros and cons of both. and any personal preferences. Using one for 4 years now just wondering.

        I posted the last reply about 2002 PPG clear. I have used it on a lot of my motorcycle custom work. I really like this clear. I use the DCX61 catalyst with it.
