Clear coat buff and then texture appears

I bc/cc'd a test panel with Shopline brand bc/cc.

I buffed about 2 weeks after I shot. Used cutting compound, swirl remover, and glaze. Perfectly smooth and shiny finish. Then a week or two after all is said and done, texture appeared. Very fine texture. Not as bad as the factory Honda peel but very fine texture. In addition, the shine/brilliance faded...

Has anyone experienced this? I dont want to paint my 66 Mustang and have this happen.

Two things can cause this and its call contraction.

*Solvent trapped in the base usually common with Black, Red or Dark green and blues because they dry slower.

The correction for the base is proper grade solvents for temperature and longer flash times.

* low solid clears it is a common problem with or cheap grade clears with poor fillers.

The correction is longer flash times, proper activator speed and or reducer if used and lees coats.

By the way the heat of your buffer accelerated the problem, sometime it will show up next day sometimes a month down the road and it all depends how you painted it.

well... the color was dark green...they did sell me a rapid dry clear (wasnt smart enough to question how fast or slow the stuff was)...it was a little warm in my garage...and i only waited the amount of flash time instructed on p sheet...shouldve waited longer.

thanks for the info. I know what to watch out for now. can you tell me when i know the paint has flashed properly? i guess i can be safe by waiting 30 - 45minutes? Will be using DBC...70 degree weather ?

What is under the paint? I had a very similar problem when I used lacquer primer, didn't know any better then. What you put under the paint can be as important as the paint you use.
