PPG DPLF is a base coat. It is intended to be topcoated with a paint. I do not normally park my cars, when they are in primer only, were it rains lacquer thinner. I would also think that if the undercoat gets softened by the solvents in a topcoat, that would only help the bond between the primer, and the paint.
DPLF is epoxy primer not a basecoat. The problem is, if you can wipe epoxy primer, or any primer for that matter, off with lacquer thinner it has not bonded to the metal. And THERE lies the problem.
