HOK Kandy wrinkling

Hello, Well I like to think Im a decent painter so Im doing a UK11kandy apple red over silver base(not my first) and its going on awful. After spraying the first the first 2 coats evenly I wait until its not stringy to the touch and continue, but by the time I get around the car to where I started its dry and my next coats start to wrinkle up. Its hot here and humid, I know not good. My question is can I let the kandy sit a day, color sand down the Kandy and respray more Kandy without rebaseing the silver. Thanks norm www.normsfiberglass.com

I had lots of problems spraying my Candy paint job. PPG Sunset Red over Pure Gold. Yes you can lightly sand the midcoat once it dries. I did a couple of times and it turned out great.

if you sand into the silver you'll need to respray the panel silver. Ive had problems spraying Candy before because of flash time I was painting too wet and not enough time between coats so the paint crackled while drying.

You sure it's the kandy and not the base wrinkling?
There have been a lot of painters having trouble with the Orion Silver base,if thats what you used, and IT has been the culprit. I'm no HOK, "expert",that would be mrcleaner6 here,but you could try him here or at SPI
or Craig Fraisers HOK based web board,Lot's of HOK info and screw up's.
Craig
for a possiable answer.

Hello, well I went through a lot of grief with painting the Kandy, what I found was that because It was so hot outside that by the time I got around the car with the next coat where I started it was already dry which caused my next coats to wrinkle so I had to start over the next day and the next day, it just seemed to never end. In hind sight I should have a added some retarder to the mix to slow it further, instead I kept beating myself over the head. Anyway the customer had an killer engine with big inter cooler pipes that needed a special hood, which I made out of foam them built a one off mold to make a fiberglass hood along with the fiberglass front end. Plus I added some ghost flames, hope you like them. thanks Norm www.normsfiberglass.com
