Future on auto windows.
Posted by Anonymous on Sunday, November 2, 2003 11:06 AM
I read the Complete Future (Great, answered almost all my questions!) and the part about dipping aircraft canopies. I do cars/trucks etc. Can I brush future onto the windshields? Would this benefit me at all? I am going to cover the body in future for a gloss look. (Over yellow enamel)

thanks
Jim

jIM I do alot of autos too, and what i do is i get a small container (preferably with a lid, so the future doesn't get contaminated),dip my clear peice in it,and put it on a piece of paper towel.....


It works great for me.........

thanks Ron!

Thats what I'll do. I just got a bottle of future and a bigole bottle of windex. :) I was going to run it through the airbrush, but for the sake of cleanup, I think I will just brush it on the car. (Its a 66 Olds 442 W30 by the way)

I love Olds, the 442, the Hurst Olds.. I drive an Alero now. (reason for wanting a 1:25 odf the Alero)

Oh, BTW, the future looks great on the body/windows.
It looked so good, I grabbed my 67 GTO and coated it too. :D

I'm new to this one. How does this process work and what does it do? I assume it makes the car shine but what dies it do for windows?

Thanks for showing me Swanny's site! I learned volumes from reading his artilces esp on the window tinting with Future and the "fencing method" of filling seems. This filling method will spare me a ton of sanding effort. Great!
