I have found, group please dorrect me if I’m wrong, if you let the
touch up dry thoroughly, wipe it quickly with liquid (Naphtha) just to
wet it, that is what it and the PF will look like cleared. No, the
Naphtha does not “change” (discolor/later) the color other than making
it wet and it will dry in several seconds, don’t over do it so as not
to remove the touch up.
Example, if you have micro cracks and you’re not sure if the clear will
“fill them in” and make them disappear, wipe with Naphtha, if they
disappear when wet then they’ll do the same under the clear… If they
don’t you’ll have to adress them possible by wiping with a dry/damp
Qtip or towel with paint of correct color.
This is my experience and opinion, I am NO expert, masters of the hobby
please advise accordingly.
