DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Prime all bare metal surfaces with urethane or epoxy primer. Sand the primer using grade P320 - P500, clean the surface and mask accordingly.
NOTE 1: When repairing into factory applied chip guard coatings prime the sanded factory coating with epoxy primer to prevent “lifting” or “blistering”.
NOTE 2: Apply only to surfaces primed with a 2K urethane, 2K epoxy primer, or clean, sanded paint. Acid etch primers should never be in direct contact with the coating.
Application And Sanding
Use at temperatures above 65°F (19°C), shake until agitator ball moves freely in the can.
Apply a light even coat to the surface from a distance of 10 - 12 inches (25 - 30 cm). Allow 5 minutes dry time before applying additional coats.
Apply additional coats to match desired texture, allowing adequate dry time between coats to avoid solvent bubbling. Texture can be varied by adjusting application speed, distance, and coating thickness. For best results, invert the can and spray to clear the actuator between coats and after use.
Allow 1 hour dry time when 2 coats are applied (more dry time is needed if additional coats have been applied) prior to painting. Lightly scuff sand using grade P500 - P600 abrasive and apply top coats or primer/sealer (refer to paint manufacturers guidelines for paint application information).

I have a Porsche 911 and am refinishing the front truck compartment. I was looking for a grey undercoat and the 3M product is the only one I could locate. I'm not thrilled about the $44 price per can but... compared to other undercoatings I have tested for the same purpose, it dries harder, and has a light semi-gloss finish which resists scuffing. I also liked the way in which it applied. When 3M refers to the color of this product being "Light grey"... I believe it should be considered very light grey with a slight warm tint. Wish there was a dark grey undercoating! All in all, I like this product very much but for the price point.
