painting, clear coat problems
So after countless hours of meticulously sanding, priming, masking, painting my frame...i was ready for the clear coat. finally. I've been using duplicolor engine enamel and have been following the instructions pretty well. until yesterday. it was pretty humid out and i wanted to get this thing done before the hurricane comes. so i sprayed on two light coats of clear coat followed by one full coat, just like the instructions said. to make a long story short it dried really cloudy on most of the frame. not pretty.
any advice on what i should do to remedy this? can i wet sand the clearcoat and try it again? should i wait a week? i'm sure as hell not starting over.
