The run in the clear coat was full of solvent and it soaked into the base.

Thanks... so how do I prevent this from happening? Would letting the base flash longer help? The window before clear is up to 24hrs... Or do I just need to make sure I don't put any runs in it period? I have always been told that runs in the clear are no big deal because they can be wetsanded... so I was more concerned with getting a wet coat than avoiding a run or two.
