Knowing there will be a reaction from the disturbed clear getting more base color added it is only reduced 1 to 1 and "dusted" on with higher air pressure to get it through the gun and anticipated extended time between coats.

The lowwer foam tape is removed to get a gental sanding in there to flaten the wrinkels. then replaced so no sand dust gets hung up in the foam tape and then more base is teased on with 45 minutes to an hour between light layers of base.

A look at the white on the paper shows progress.

The foam tape allows the air to swirl and bounce around preventing a "hard' tape line edge.

The second pic has been adjusted to show the expected reaction where there was sanding into the clear where the fly was.



Flow the air and then barely tap in the trigger...
