Omni 2k primer over Omni base

Hi guys,
I am a first time poster here, I have been digging around here picking up alot of tips for a few days now. This is a really cool forum.

I am in the middle of a paint project right now, and I need a little advice.

I am using Omni products to paint a hood for my car. I did some body work and put down several coats of 2k filler primer over the entire hood. I sanded, and smoothed everything, then moved on to spraying the base color, red. As the color was going on, I ended up noticing a couple problems that I now want to fix. I had some contamination on the surface that wrinkled the paint, and I noticed another dip that I didn't fill, and I'm worried about some slightly visible sanding scratches that seem to be visible now.

I want to fix some stuff and re-prime the hood with more 2k primer. Can I spray this primer over the red base that I put down? Maybe after scuffing the entire surface? I didn't clear coat anything yet. Will the catalyzed primer burn the base color below?

Let me be the first to welcome you here, this is a great community.

Yes, you can spray the 2K primer over the base, if enough time has passed since you put down the base. Usually about five to seven days is sufficient. The base needs to be scuffed first though.
