This stuff is awesome for shooting flake. I was using another product from ppg that I’m sure many people use, however I was having poor to incredibly lack luster results. I spoke with Chris @ Didspade C/S and he recommended me to use Tamco intercoat ( among other tweaking of my approach ). Night and day difference in lay out. Was shot 4-5 medium heavy coats of .015 flake and after three coats of h/s clear I could almost live with not even sanding it to flow coat. Killer product, I won’t use anything else for custom paint work anymore.
