    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very little actual laquer. This lacquer dries in seconds. It seems to be mainly solvent so that the lacquer is set almost immediately it lands on the surface. There is no time for a smooth surface to form and the finish resembles a nutmeg grater. I followed the instructions accurately and the surface had been smoothed with 1200 grit wet and dry, as per instructions. It was applied on a day with variable cloud and a temperature of about 18 degrees. The surface was cool to the touch. Since reviews seem to be either very good or terrible it would seem that quality is very variable.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Avoid! After spending hours on prep work for my girlfriend's Golf R32, she decided she wanted a black finish on the front grill. I couldn't fault the primer and the black paint from Halfords and the results looked stunning.. that is.. until I applied the clear lacquer. This item totally ruined the end result. Patches everywhere and a god awful, especially in sunlight. I never write these kinds of reviews but if it saves someone else from wasting a weekend stripping paint then so be it.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Looks good but standard thinner will take it off! Sprayed some parts on my bike. Black metallic base with Halford clear. I'm not new to spraying gun or rattle can. The metallic was good and the clear coat was easy to apply and came up like glass. So what is my issue? I put the parts back on the bike after a week. Did a couple of hundred miles and picked up some flies. I tried to wash off the flies but they seemed to have become embeded in the paint. I resorted to flatting back the clear with a view to polishing it out - no problem normally. This Halfords clean just would not polish! Next plan, clean the part with standard thinner to get rid of the compound, flat back and re-clear clear coat. The thinner took the paint straight off! What was left on the part was soft and sticky! After more than a week? That is absolutely ridiculous! I won't be using this Halfords stuff again (I am reluctant to call it paint), it certainly ain't paint as we know it. 2K clear all the way from now on!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT It compeltely ruined the paint work. I should have read the comments before purchasing it. It is the worst lacquer I have ever used. I want a refund for this item !!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much better After trying the three stick system to touch-up my car and having a poor result, with the size of the brush type touch-up, I opted for the spray can and achieved a much more acceptable result. I know I had to tackle the whole panel but the end result was far superior to what I was able to achieve with the three pen system.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I wanted I bought this to use through an air brush. I had a repair that was too big for regular touch up methods and not big enough to justify respraying the whole panel. The paint is metallic silver so not the easiest to match! I decanted a small amount into a jar and after an hour or so to let it de-gas I was able to use it in the air brush without any further thinning. Needed to wet sand and buff to get the finish but it worked great and a lot better value than buying the small bottles of clear lacquer online.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not fit for purpose - avoid. Not surprised by the bad reviews on here. The poor level of gloss despite using 1 & a half cans (4-5 coats) of the stuff on a Honda Jazz bumper with metallic base paint. Even wet sanding and rubbing compound failed to bring any acceptable level of gloss. Not sure how Halfords gets away with selling stuff like this. Avoid.
