Damn It! Wrong color!

Hi all,
New to the forum. Been painting with PPG Deltron 2000 and other PPGs for about 10 years. Painting a set of saddlebags to match the rest of the bike. Everything went really well, but, I had a few paint cans sitting on the counter and I used the wrong basecoat!!! Didn't bother to check until after I put the clear on (JC661)

So my question...because this is a problem I've never dealt with, how do I basecoat over the FRESH clearcoat? I know that fresh clear can be a problem child if it's blown thru and you apply base to an open edge. I'm really curious if I can come in tomorrow and apply the correct base to the fresh clear without sanding? Can I take advantage of the chemistry and keep the adhesion going?

Really stupid that I didn't check the label before I sprayed... Kicking myself!!

I would sand it so no texture shows in the basecoat but you are probably OK if you are cautious. Get a lamp on it or set it in the sun today if you can. Penalize yourself for the mistake by locating and studying the technical data document for the products used, and memorizing the recoat sections.

Love the penance! So angry I did this! Yup Idrive, I agree with the texture concern too. I'm scared to block out such a fresh clear? Surely the base coat is gonna crinkle it? ... reading my tech sheets...

Well now I didn't say block it.. buzzing slow with a DA using a soft interface pad would be my choice. If its hard enough to sand, thats as good as you're gonna get if you can't push the project until next weekend. I don't paint but did, and never with that clear. We all know you're in a touchy spot, and the only thing that might improve your odds would be dusting sealer coats on before base. Play out the potential negative outcomes and make your pick, but don't forget that being honest with a customer about a mistake may not be the worst on that list. If its yours, man just run funky colored saddlebags for this week. More pennance, lol. If you brave it, just sneak up on those color coats with lots of patience and flash flash flash.
