The bonnet i did recently had a reaction with some previous paint and i had to dry flat this and spray the colour on really dry. I managed to get the colour on ok after about 10-12coats of real thin base, then cleared again with no solvent. The day after the hazing effect was quite apparent, probably the most noticable ive ever see it.

oldBodyman, your comments are the most interesting and i will definatly try leaving the base over night to see what happens!<wasnt that Barry that suggested that, not obm?>
Do yourself a favor and
1: take Barry's advice.
2: use SPI primers and clears and SPI base whenever possible and save some of your Looneys and have great results.
