I have been using the combination of these two products for the last few months. I gave both a 5 star rating as they have not failed since I started using them.
I put 2 coats of the sealant, then I sand it with 400 grit sandpaper to smooth it. I then put 3 light coats of the lacquer and then I sand it again with 400 grit.
I am picky about the finish I put on my projects, but I know from experience that shine sells!
I then apply 12 more coats of the lacquer, I know that sounds like a lot but putting 3 light coats per day, it doesn’t take that long. Then the project goes on a two week vacation. These 14-21 days let the finish dry and harden.
I then use a 1000 and 2000 grit Festool pads with soapy water for lubricant and dust control. Once I have it to the surface that suits me, I put two coats of polish on.
I use SURBUF pads and MENZERNA 2000 and 4000 polish. I just polish to a mirror finish.
Hope this help some of you that are looking for a slick shining finish.

That is quite the finishing procedure, I’ll bet it looks great. Any problems spraying right out of the can? Is the coat/spread good, and are there any blotches?

Bob,
The spray is very even. The secret, I have found is to use mist coats rather than heavy cover.
Being retired, I have the time
