I have no experience with this stuff. Hell I never used bondo before this learning experience. I must say damn that **** dries in a hurry. I spent about a month reading as much as i could. You cant beat good old experience. Maybe in my case just good old common sense(which ever way you want to look at it). I'm pretty bumbed about it but I dont see it as a total loss now. I have learned some very good knowledge and I feel like i could do some grade A body work/ paint job on the next one.

I'm going to give some of the advice i recieved a try and chalk this up as a learning experience.
Yup, Thats all you can do...we've all been there ...

Try wiping the base off with rubbing alcohol on a rag before advancing to lacquer thinner. If you didn't activate the Chromabase and just reduced it, this ought to work. If what I think I read is correct, you'll have to step up to lacquer thinner but try rubbing alcohol first since it is way less aggressive and cheaper. The alcohol(like you can buy in any pharmacy off the shelf) will remove uncatalyzed base and clear, I just learned that trick due to an airbrush artist friend of mine having a learning experience on my son's hood. Talk to the store mangler at Slo Reilly and ask him if there's anything he can do for you, they'll usually jump through hoops to please you if you're a regular customer and courteous. Our local Slo'Reilly mixes nason, Chromabase and Spies-Hecker. Chromabase is a premium base and in 20 years of spraying as a hobbyist, I've not had bad luck with it. As for sanding, wet sand it to no finer than 600 grit so the new base has something to bite to.

Good luck,
