YJ Jeep with Pledge Future. Finished
Posted by elation on Friday, August 04, 2017 1:01 PM

Had this Tamiya Jeep wrangler kit since 1993-94 and started it just now.

 

 

 

First time using acrylic paint to build a car...well first time building a car in almost 20 years.

Didn't really see many of you using Pledge to clear coat the car, so I gave it a try.

Thank you!

It's not the shinest, but not too bad for using such a cheap product.

Still satifisfied.

Thanks for sharing your trial and results here. I've not used this for a final clear coat yet but have used it for decals and clear resin and clear styrene parts .

Very nice job! Ditto on what Sprue One said above. Never tried except for canopys and over decals. Always shied away from cars because of the extra shiny finish. Going to have to give it a try. Thanks for showing it can be done.

Oh, yes, worked real well, but then my models are less impressive than yours, but the gloss was just right for me.

I bet this would be very hard to find these days, I would love to build this  myself!

You did a very very nice job! WOW!
