Clear coat orange peel

Postby Daddyd955 » Fri Sep 21, 2018 8:15 am

I have just started using deltron 3000 clearcoat over my patinas, looks great on my first coat, but after applying my second , seem to to be having orange get peel problems, here in Texas humidity is high, don't know if I'm waiting too long or not long enough between coats, also any suggestions on gun pressures, and orange peel repair. Thanks

I may be wrong but I think I remember that the first coat needs to be light and have enough time before you apply another coat so the solvents in the next coat does not melt the first. 2 google search ... y-painting

If the clearcoat is thick enough, you can color sand until it's smooth then buff
