I bought a new grill, and am worried about peeling from all the random weather conditions is toronto.

do i need to sand the new grill before i clearcoat?

My intentions were to just apply a lot of thin layers???

what is the best way for going about this because my first (fake cf) grill lasted 6 months and then peeled to shit

Is the new grill real CF? If so, it should be cleared from the factory.

However, anytime you clear you need to sand. Lightly sand with 600 grit paper by hand. You only need to scuff the surface. I assume you're painting with aerosol. Follow the instructions on the can. Generally, you need a light coat followed by a heavier coat. Careful with clear. There's a sweet spot between too much and too little. Too much, you get runs. Too little, you get flat spots.
