Jus quick question

hi jus got a quick question I’m gonna be doing some interior trim pieces for a customer but he wants to keep the colour of trim so was wondering if I can clear coat everything and dip it n then clear coat after wondering if the film will still take hold to the clear same as any colour? 
Using OHW clear thanks in advance.

    If you can dip it within 8-12 hours, you can use regular clear coat. If you need to stretch that out, then you default to innercoat.

    So to dip a piece and keep the original color of the peice, you would 
    1. Intercoat the piece
    2. Dip
    3. Clear coat.
    Is that right? 
    Probably completely wrong but as a newbie i'm just asking for future refrence.
    Thanks

    @pito You have to abrade the original surface... Hopefully that is clear.
    1. Scuff
    2. clear or innercoat (based on the window requirements)
    3. dip
    4. clear

    Gotcha. But remember, years from now, someone will search this forum and read this post and will be less knowledgeable about the process. We tend to form our answers and be very specific about things like that with others in mind. Not to insinuate that you, personally, don't know to clean the part first.
