Carlack System

I've been looking at the Carlack system but as I have a lot of stone chips on my black 159 would I be better using Black Hole Glaze then Carlack LLS and not bother with the NSC?
Is this an acceptable method of layering?
Will be claying first.
Thanks.

Not sure if you will gain anything. The Carlack cleaner and sealant work well together but I suspect the sealant will loose a fair amount of durability if applied over the Poorboys glaze.

It is always worth experimenting just be aware of potential bonding issues.

I have used the Carlack "twins" extensively over the years. I agree with lowejackson's reply above. Rather use both in tandem and then top the LLS with a wax. If you are only going to use one, then I would use the NSC and top that with something else. The NSC is a really good Acrylic Sealant.

I will use the cleaner and sealant combo but will I still need to clay or will the use of the cleaner be sufficient?

You do not need to clay but it would help
