I understand that the 2 cross-coats should be applied in thin layers (much thinner than normal solvent-based applications) ... increasing fluid amount 1/8 to 1/4 turn on 2nd, 3rd & 4th coats. However after following those directions I ended up with a zillion pinholes appearing a half hour or so after the final coat. Looked perfect prior to that. I suspect the solvent (water) was trapped and then released in the final coat.
Question is: do I need to reduce airflow or prior to the final coat let it flash off for an excessive amount of time (gave it 10-15 minutes and it was tacked up perty well before the last coat)? Thought leaving it much longer would result in orange peel and it will not flow together well.
This is proving to be quite different than normal painting and I just want to dial in on the solution please. I'm using a decent paint booth, good clean dry air (3-stage dessicant air dryer), and a SATA 4000b at 25 psi.
Suggestions? How have others overcome this issue?
