I never said I believed it would heal. I never seen that before to be honest.

I think his problem is with waterborne in itself. The technology has come a long way but it's still in its infancy and you HAVE to keep it all on one system, unlike solvent borne where you can use different products and get good results. Not saying you can't get away with it using a certain combination of products but your chances of problems increase when spraying waterborne basecoats and not sticking to one brand through the entire paint process. I agree, Martin. We agree on something!
