Use a tiny amount of thinner to get a wet look. Too much and it will look dull and textured. I found a thicker mixture flows better and gives a glossy finish. Wet sand the primer with 600 grit wet/dry sandpaper before paint.

The hardener will make caseIH paint both look and hold up as good as the fancy stuff but you do have to have the right safety equipment to use it. Old Ugly got hardener but I was in a community college class and using their downdraft paint booth.

Both reducers worked fine for me. The hardener, pictured on the right, is what I have used with good results. As mentioned above, take the necessary precautions when using isocyante hardeners, especially breathing protection.
