This is a point every new painter should be a ware of, never use a fish-eye eliminator in a primer or base-coat.
About 15 years ago a shop in MS had the clear blow off a black base-coat Job he did on a Lexis allover, the car never made it out of the shop and the clear came off in sheets, never saw clear come off like that before or since but he had a real problem with the base and he added the fish-eye eliminator.

NEVER use it in anything but clear and you still should not use it.

Great post Jester, something everyone should know.
