Good question- I would love to know the answer! Seems that a fine sanding and a satin clear respray would do it. Of course a Line-X finish would be sweet- no rust, scratches, fading, and it has a real gritty texture. Yum!

Yup. Or you could probably have someone spray a satin clear over the current clear coat.

I can't imagine that would be that expensive, provided you actually liked the color your car was.

I've heard and read that the Line-x is a thinner application, so lighter, and is more resistant to cracking and flaking vs the Rhino. PLUS, they can COLOR MATCH with Line-x, which is sweet. White, Red, Brown, whatever you want.

If I was doing a build from the frame up, I would consider doing much of the painting with color Line-x.

That is my question, because it seems a satin clear would get oily and blotchy since you can't really buff it.

Oh I meant the Line-X, but you make a good point, plus you'd never be able to buff any swirlies out.

Trust me. I've worked with Rhino and Line-x. when I build up my classic and do a full tear down and restoration, I'm going to line-x the underside and floor panels. It's a GREAT rust inhibitor, and the colo match options and it's far more durable. Rhino lining requires a UV resistant coating otherwise it cracks, chips, begins to get a milky top layer. I had it in the bed of my old truck... Line-x is the way to go.
