How to remove fish eyes in clear coat
This weekend I stripped and painted an original fender extension to replace the junk repro on my 70 Chevelle. I used the same Omni products, etch primer, primer surfacer, primer sealer, and base coat as I did to paint the whole car about a year and a half ago. The clear coat I used is what the paint store called a "house brand" clear coat made by Smart technologies. I did not have any issues with these products when painting the whole car but when I applied the clear on this fender extension today it fisheyed. I got the base coat put on last night and then this afternoon I sprayed the clear. I didnt think to clean it off with wax and grease cleaner today but I did gently wipe it down with a tac rag. The only thing I can think of that caused it may have been the exhaust from my salamander heater that I ran for about 10 minutes today.
More importantly, what steps do I need to take to fix this? Can I just sand off the clear, spray another coat of base and then re clear? Or do I have to sand everything off and start all over?
Thanks in advance for any advice!
