Reducing PPG Concept Urethane by [email protected]
I shot my first batch of PPG concept today, and it shot slower (and had more orange peel) than I expected. When I was shooting the primer, I accidentally over reduced it - and discovered that it sprayed much better. Smoother finish and faster spray. I mixed the PPG per the instructions: 4...
