Future on car bodies

hey can you use future on car bodies to get the shine like with the windows?

Yes, you can use it but spray on just a few light coats. And dont rub on it too much (after it drys) i.e. polishing kits , sandpaper, polish etc. Because it has a tendency to crack.

i agree, yes you can use it on bodies also but first water it down a tiny bit and airbrush it in mist coats. let it dry for about 3-4 days and then use NOVUS #2 Fine Scratch Remover to buff it out. then polish with Tamiya Model Wax or similiar for a great finish. NOVUS #1, #2, and #3 are the best products i have found for ANY Acrylic paint.. period

What exactly is future?

It's a clearcoat right?

this will sound really funny but...... Future is actually Future Floor Wax... a product found in just about any Grocery Store or Wal-Mart or what ever. Its an Acrylic based finish for floors that does an amazing job on plastic windows and even bodies. and best of all... it will wash of with water easier then Acrylic paint.

well this has been covered a 1000 times im sure but once again... for plastic windows dip the entire plastic glass piece in Future and slowly pull it out and then set it on a paper towel to dry. let dry a few days. it WILL look great. for bodies.. thin it a bit with water and airbrush it... didnt i just go through these steps like an hour ago??????
