DrDirt- Im not so hung up on the “max thickness” from the point of view that i purposely wanna build something extremely thick. Its more from the standpoint of a hvlp novice. The post cat stuff and CV have much more strict thickness to stay within. My impression from luthiers and such is that old style nitro cellulose lacquer has been applied numerous numerous times. 20+ light coats even.

That aspect flat out just makes it easy for me to not mess up, to thin, to thick, ect. And since Nitro burns into the last layer I dont have to worry a bout layer thickness so when I put a buffer to it I dont have to worry about burning through a layer.

If my concerns are to exxagertaed feel free to re-inform me please.
