Re-VHT to darken it if you wish. Then use the Duplicolor Auto clearcoat, not the acrylic laquer.

2 coats, let it dry for a couple hours in direct sunlight, wet-sand with 1000 grit, then apply the last coat.
The answer was given to you my son, now go in peace and respect the Bonneville

Never dry. And I can't gaurantee that'll get rid of the purple. I have no idea how Pat did that.

You should already have wetsandpaper. Didn't it get used between coats of clear already, as detailed in all my previous posts?
