An excellent performance clear coat!

awsome clear!

The clear is great! High build over graffic design nice depth and great gloss just like the the RM glamor clear and more. In this photo the rear fender and saddle bags were cleared with 2104 euro clear and the tank and front fender cleared with RM DC92 10 years ago. This clear is no longer available in Canada. I'm sticking with temco as much as possible.

This clear is by far the best I've ever used, even beats the acryglo aircraft certified clear I normally use and its 2x the price.

Shipping was right on time!
