Default Re: Re-spraying record decks.

Don't try for total opacity in one coat. Make your first coat cover everything with a uniform degree of opacity, leave it a while to flash off solvent, spray another similar layer, and keep repeating until you have full opacity. It's a common mistake to try to lay the whole lot down in one pass.

Remember that the solvents are highly inflammable and that you can reach explosive proportions before you notice...qv the recent news article on the smoker who'd used a lot of air freshener in his car before lighting up. It blew the car apart with him in it and damaged windows in nearby buildings. Good ventilation is rather important.
