Bubbles and Runs


Recommended Posts



I have a set of brake calipers that I have painted using a specialize 2-part caliper paint, wet sanded and applied high-temp vinyl decals.  I applied (sprayed) the Diamond Finish Clear but think I may have over done it in some areas by spraying it a little too heavy.  I now have some runs and quite a few bubbles that make the surface feel and look like non-skid.  The areas that are bubble and run free look GREAT, like a polished Steinway.


Anyway, I'd like to know how I can correct the bubbles and runs without destroying the vinyl decals underneath?


Thanks in advance for the assistance.


Here are the calipers with base coat, prior to wet sand and Diamond Clear

You are correct that the runs and micro bubbles are typically caused by applying too thick of a coating.


At this point, you can lightly sand out the run and bubbles and apply another coat of DiamondFinish Clear.


Please let us know if that helps and if you have additional questions.


Thank you for choosing KBS Coatings!
