ok i think it is true that i waited too long. it was probably close to an hour on some of it. i have the car in pieces.
i got up this am and shot the hood waiting only 5 min between coats. it came out perfect.
now the question is how do i handle the bad parts. i will have to wet sand the clear and reshoot them. hopefully the base color will be ok. how long do i wait to sand and reshoot? thanks for the help.
