    Hi,

    Recently painted the interior of my truck using the PPG envirobase HP and the EC530 clear and I got a lot of great info from this site so I thought my question might apply here.

    This interior transmission tunnel cover is bolted down using bolts and washers. As I tightened the bolts, the washers spin a bit and tear up the clear under the washer. I’m curious on how to prevent that in the future. I know there’s an “engine bay convertor” which might negate the need for the CC, but I liked the appearance and wanted it to match the exterior.

    Any ideas if this failure is application related failure or just the product not made to be compressed by bolts like this?

    A couple picture samples, you can see the clear around the bolt is missing and leaves the base coat exposed.
