What should I use to take it all off with? People said somethings and others said don't use it so I don't know what to get to use on it.

try a paint thinner. NOT LACQUER THINNER is that does not work you will have to watersand it off with 1500 grit or finner.


a thought did just come to me. (but it might not work) is that you could sand it SMOOTH (not off) then reclear it with a better clear over the whole thing.
the reason I say it might not work is that I do not know anything about the old clear used and how the new stuff would react to it.

I'll just use the paint thinner and re-do..Does anyone think I should try a different Clear then the Duplicolor clear that I got? Or if stay with that, how should I do it this time?
Last time I spray a coat...waited 30mins...then next coat...ETC...

Spray one coat, wait till its Tacky but not wet, point where if you touched it, it would leave a finger print in the clear, but not get all over your finger. then spray a second coat
Do not touch the clear on the light itself, do your test touched on a spot close to your work area, but not on it
