Default Re: Paint Disaster, Any Clues?

Ray, I'm almost certain it was temperature related along with maybe too heavy an application. I usually never try to paint anything unless it's 70 degrees or better. I got in a hurry on this because the bike looks so stupid with a silly liitle chrome kit peanut tank. It was the warmest day we've had for a long time and I really thought the sun would help. Guess I was wrong.

I won't try again until it warms up some and I'll just ride the thing and put up with the goofy looking tank. Thanks and yeah, I know about Lusterkote's incompatibility with some paints. I learned about that the hard way back in my R/C days. I remember the cowling on a scale F4-U Corsair. No fun getting that stuff off after it dried.
