Barry, did you mean I used too slow a reducer in the base(not fast)?
used dt870 thinned the paint 50% temp was 85 in the shop...waited about 60 minutes after 2nd base coat to do clear.. 2 coats base, 2 coats clear...the trapped solvent makes sense...I sure would have thought I waited long enough...well, I'll let you know...
That is your problem, you used to fast of reducer for the temp, a 70 degree reducer at 85 is a sure way to trap solvents.
Sounds like you my have gotten off easy, as a lot of other things could have happened, not counting potential DE-lamination down the road.
Fast is not faster when used at wrong temp.
