Clear coat

Anyone Re-Do their clear coat?
Range in costs? Worth it?

Does the Axis have a coat of clear coat on it? HD Max is a color tinted gel coat and I do not believe Thor sprays clear over that. Now, I could be wrong on that.

I too could be wrong but I believe that only coaches with full body paint are clear coated. And not all of the FBP coaches are. Often you can tell by examining the transition between colors or decals. It there is a clear, sharp transition itís probably not clear coated. If itís a softer or smoother transition - or if you canít even feel the transition at all - it probably is. I wouldnít hazard a guess what it would cost to do!

I thought I read somewhere it was about $10k, though that may have included a FDP. I just remember shaking my head and thinking 'not this kid'.

Nursx2 did a FBP on his Hurricane/Windsport.

Iíve been using Turtle Wax Ceramic Spray on my Magnitude. Easy to apply and gives it a nice shine as well as makes the surface pretty slick.

ZEP Floor Polish
Works great on the fiberglass, just like a clearcoat
I keep my RV parked under cover when not on the road so that it stays out of the hot sun.
The fiberglass caps look brand new.

I'm in the process of having my rig ceramic coated. Having a professional due it. I'm hoping this helps with the SunBurn I'm experiencing in the Southern Nevada Heat and Sun...
