With respect to solvent popping...what are you using for an exhaust fan?...and did the the top panels pop and the where the sides OK? Solvent popping is often caused by the top of the paint you sprayed skimming over due to too much air moving over the car. If you the paint does skim over, the solvents left underneath the paint are still trying to get out and causing a volcano effect (or solvent pop) when they do finally get out. If your air flow is OK, the speed of your solvent (reducer) or hardner can also have a bearing on solvent popping.
