Gonna try another coat in a bit and see what happens...
Wow, nice thread ressurection Vikash. Over 2 years old

I remember when this happened. This was when I first started spraying.

Its just so maddening because the effort involved with sanding is a bit gauling when you realise you just wasted your time.

Be sure to check out the BBC weather website and enter your postcode to get a pretty specific summary of the weather conditions in your area. My advice from previous experience is not to spray if the humidy level is 70%+ and prefereably less than 60%. Always try to pick a nice days with minimum clouds and good sun, the paint always dries quicker between coats and you get zero moisture trapped in the finish (clouding). Of course if you spray in a warm and well ventilated garage then ignore this.

If you must spray outside on somewhat damp days, do it undercover and I also use two patio heaters spraying heat over the work. I haven't had any problems with this method but I generally leave it until a decent day unless its urgent.

Thank Al,

I've just got back from a trip into town and dropped a couple of parcels off at the post office including your AV15. It will be with you mid next week.
