basecoat sanding question

I sprayed Nason basecoat and had a problem with some wrinkles, must have sprayed too heavy over old paint. I used a sealer. But my question is, I stopped where I was and am going to fix problems before I use any clear. What should I use to sand basecoat with before I rebase? Would real fine scotchbrite work? Once I get wrinkles sanded down, would epoxy primer be good to use over problem areas.

Just wait 24 or tommorow and use 4-600 and sand it flat. Reshoot the base with double the flash time between coats. I've wrinkled more Nason than anybody learning it cause it's a converted enamel and takes forever to flash off before the next coat. Using a sealer seems to make matters worse IMO as I did a jr dragster with Feather fill G2 and then Nason. Just sprayed it too fast between coats but did not realize this,Thinking it was the G2,used their sealer and it made it wrinkle again even worse. So it really comes down to plenty of flash time between coats before hitting it again.Black is a good hour between coats and if your using their binder,150, for a kandy medium, be SURE to give it plenty of dry time between coats.Don't ask how I know this.

I have 2 coats of base on whole car. Do I need to wet sand the whole car with 600 along with fixing problem spots? Would grey scotchbrite be ok to use too?

Use the 600 to flatten out the wrinkled areas and gray pad the rest. Wipe it down with a grease & wax cleaner,give that time to dry and lay your base.
You can add a cap full of the clear catylist to each sprayable qt. to help it lock up better. Meaning a cap full per reduced,ready to spray paint.

I sprayed the base about 3pm yesterday,how long can you wait on nason before clearing, I saw dupont was 24 hr,I was thinking maybe I could fix bad spots and not have to sand entire car and just apply more base, The data sheet doesn't say the longest you can wait
