Sanding base coat

Here's my problem. Sprayed some base on the trunk lid and I can still see some scratch marks left from sanding the 2K primer. If I sand it smooth with 1500 wet and sand thru to the 2K in spots, can I blow on a couple more coats of base without problems or will it wrinkle. I haven't cleared it yet. Whats the best way to fix this?

You're on the right track. Sand with some 400-600 wet. Mix a little Dawn dish washing liquid in with the water. After you have it smooth, you may need to spray a couple of coats of primer and resand just like before. Just make sure you have all the previous sanding scratches out. Wash the area good with some more Dawn, rinse, dry. Wipe down with some Isopropyl (rubbing alcohol) and then tack.

Then spray your new base coat on.

Even if you had sprayed on the clear coat, it would be the same process.

Good luck and get back with us with your results.
