Wrinkles

#1
Hey guys thanks for putting this site up. I started painting a few years ago and have done well with my jobs up till today. Sprayed my base and let it set up for 3.5 hours. First time using intercoat clear, that being said, shot first light coat no problem. Waited about 20 minutes shot second medium coat and started noticing gator skin about ten minutes in. Temp s about 75° and using medium reducer. Dbc 500 over mbc plus. What do I do to fix this? Any advice would help. Thanks

I'll go step by step.. First went down to bare metal, removed dents, 3 coats epoxy, body filler, 4 coats 2k, wets sanded 600, 2 coats sealer, 3 coats base, let that dry about 3.5 hrs then shot my intercoat one light coat then a medium coat about 15 minutes later. Using dbc 500 over omni mbc plus base.

Everything was perfect till I shot the last coat of intercoat. Stopped there. Lol. Can I sand the gators out and reshoot the intercoat if I let it cure four or five hrs???

what is under the base? did you prime or seal...and with what?
I'm not real savy with this site yet, did you get my reply??? Either way I'm out of the woods now. Lol. I let it set for about five hours wet sanded with 1000 and then 1500. Reshot inter coat and I came out looking good. On to tape and flames. Thanks for your reply. I hope you got the other two replies. Thanks again.

it wasnt really the intercoat that was the issue. its the sealer. i have never u sed that particular one but some sealers can be slow especially when you do more than one coat. some sealers are meant to be shot really thin. you shot 2 coats then shot your base. the solvents in your intercoat soaked into your sealer because it wasnt cured enough. basically you did 5 coats on top of a wet sealer too fast. slow the base and intercoat process down. longer flash times are needed or a different sealer that isnt so sensitive.
