I also put on a wet coat of primer which probably should have been laid down dusted for a couple coats and probably should have waited for the clear solvents to evaporate or escape. Can't remember what you call that right now. Then after the dusted coats I could go wetter.


That is right Sam, there is only ONE way that bc/cc urethane is going to wrinkle like that, solvents got thru it. The ONLY ways solvents can get thru a urethane like that is that it was sanded too thin, it wasn't applied thick enough or it was improperly activated and wasn't cured. Of course it could also be other things that would cause it to not cure like too much reducer added and it was piled on too thick.

But to sand it off and prime it again is pretty much the best way to handle it.
