Ahhhhh, so I was on the right track. Different gallon, different color.

thats alot of paint for one truck you probably do have a solvent pop problem. with that much paint you might be able to cut and buff it away. i would try it in a spot you wont see much. being your first paint job i'll assume that your going to be i unfamiliar territory here might find someone that is and let them see if it will help. i hope for your sake that the last gallon was the same color.

Very observant, I think you are on the right track as a possibility here. I just don't like the new gallon of paint being mixed up, and THAT is the one that is different.

It'll be interesting to see. I put on 4 coats, waiting the required 15 minutes between coats in order to have a lot of paint on there since I've never sanded and buffed before.

Generally speaking, I think it will look okay for a driver. A fair amount of orange peel and some drips, of course. Doubt I'll ever make a living as a painter...
